Snow Mouse

With the same tender charm that has made other books about Mouse's first experiences popular, Thompson and Erdogan explore the joy that comes with a first encounter with snow. Mouse gets to sled, skate, and build a grand snow house with his father's unswerving support. Good for you! exclaims Poppa after Mouse swishes down a hill. Other efforts are encouraged with Hooray!, Good work!, and Wonderful! Finally the two build A frosty little snow mouse just like you! and the book concludes with wishes for a Happy winter. In the sweet acrylic paintings, the snow is cool and luminous, yet the scenes remain warm. Child-friendly language, complete with some simple sound effects and repeated phrases, make this title a solid winter read-aloud. ~ School Library Journal, amazon.com
