Komako Sakai - Snow Day, The

Snow Day, The

Author: Komako Sakai; Illustrator: Komako Sakai

  • AGES 3 - 5 
  • Genre Fiction
A modern take on a winter classic!A young bunny wakes up to wonderful news: a snow day! School is cancelled, and the morning and afternoon that follow are full of the games and excitement of snow. But the weather brings bad news as well, as his father is stranded in a faraway city. When will he be able to come home?Whatever the weather, whatever the season, you can open this book to experience the fun and wonder of a snow day.** "Sakai clearly understands the predicament of being cooped up in an urban high rise: trying to stay entertained with games, constantly gazing out the window, being lured by the balcony. Her subdued palette and minimalist text suggest the blanketed sound produced by a heavy snowfall. Atmospheric, tender, full of anticipation and satisfaction, this one will charm young children. " — School Library Journal, starred review

** " Sakai”s muted palette and grainy illustrations perfectly capture the quiet, opaque atmosphere of a snowy day. The cant of rabbit”s ears and clever compositions subtly indicate the little one”s emotional state: Tighter, denser compositions denote when rabbit is safe inside; open, expansive urban landscapes with ample negative space capture the freedom of playing in fresh-fallen snow. A reassuring story, perfect for a winter”s day." — Kirkus Reviews, starred review
