Let It Snow

Let It Snow. Maryann Cocca-Leffler. 2010. Scholastic. 24 pages.

Let it snow!
It's winter!
Swirling, whirling,
first snowflakes.
Skating, spinning on frozen lakes.
Lacy trees, hills of white, 
sledding, snowmen, snowball fight.

This one is a short and simple picture book celebrating winter. Of course, the winter in this picture book is one filled with snow, snow, and more snow. The children are THRILLED of course with what "fun" snow brings into their lives. But as the winter progresses, some of the thrills begin to lessen. The book follows children through the season of winter--the book closes with the first signs of spring.

This is the follow up to Let it Fall which was published earlier this year. Both books appear to be simple, poetic, and reader-friendly.
