As a child, I can remember two little words that I wanted to hear on a winter morning: snow day! There’s something so magical about the first snowfall that brings smiles and excitement about the day that lies ahead. If this sounds familiar, check out Snow Day! by Lester Laminack. This book captures the hope and excitement about a possible snow day with an unexpected twist at the end. I’ve put together a few activities to pair with this book that I want to share with you.
About the Book
When the weatherman predicts a big snowfall, it’s hard not to imagine the fun-filled adventures of an unscheduled school holiday! You can build snowmen, go sledding, have snowball fights―the possibilities are endless. Except when the family wakes up that next morning, they find no snow! School is happening, and all their dreams of a winter wonderland are gone. But as the family piles into the car to head to school, an unexpected twist reveals who wanted the snow day most of all.
