  • I really enjoyed this book The author and illustrator did a great job of showing what children and adults go through when they are expected a snow day from school This book would be great to read to your kids or a classroom during the winter months As a teacher you like to read books that interact with what is going on around you, and the book Snow Day gets kids excited about the possibility of snow days in the school year.


  • The narrator believes there will be a snow day and she thinks of all the things she will do, only to find out the snow day is cancelled The ending is surprising because you learn the narrator is a teacher Often times children forget the teacher is human and has a life outside of school, this story gives teacher s and students common ground I think this story would be great in the winter when the weather forecast is expecting snow K 3


  • Audience This book is appropriate for 2nd 3rd grade because it does not have a lot of words and the vocabulary is not very challenging However, I feel all elementary students would enjoy reading this book.Appeal This book is very appealing to all elementary students because it is about a snow day which is something every child dreams about and can easily relate to.2010 2011 Golden Sower Nominee

  • This is a sweet book perfect to read during the winter to students It can be used to give ideas to students about all the fun things there are to do outside, even when its cold It encourages to students to get out of the house technology and be creative in the outdoors This would be a good read aloud with accountable talking points and places where students could turn and talk about their own snow day experiences.


  • The anticipation of a snow day is almost better than the snow day itself Wonderful, amazing, we can t go snow Such plans are made Such joy is described Such panic the next morning when the snow doesn t come Drat I really needed a snow day Lured into an assumption as to who the narrator of the story is, the reader is surprised by the twist at the end Very cute and fabulous illustrations.


  • Great story to read to a class Two kids and a dad are watching the news and see that a big snowstorm is predicted Written all in dialogue, the narrator thinks of all the fun things they ll do on their snow day sleep in, go sledding, make a fort, drink cocoa, etc Next day, they do have to go to school, and they have to hurry, because it turns out the narrator is the dad who s a teacher.

  • This book is so cute It is really how kids feel every night when they think there is going to be snow and a snow day the next day I can remember staying up all night waiting for it to snow and it never snow I think the teachers feel the same way too, everyone needs that one day off every once in a while.


  • The weatherman on the news announces a snow storm and the family imagines a fun unplanned holiday of playing in the snow They wake up and look outside to no snow and scramble to get to school on time Good for showing a small moment in writing Strong beginning, middle, and end Kids could connect it to typhoon days or other unplanned holidays Teachers will laugh at the last page.


  • This book is a funny one I has the purfect ending The pictures are a lot of fun Children can learn in this book how and why schools are closed when it is snowing My lesson I would help children first make hot coco Then I would have a bag of marshmellos where the children would count to see how many can fit in thier mugs.
