Rated 5 out of 5 by from I can't believe I found it When I was a little girl everytime I would go to the libary one of the books I was sure to come home with was Katy and the Big Snow. But then the libary lost it or something and I never saw it after. While doing a search on your site I was more then surprised to find that you have it avaliable. It was such a nice story. Now that I can find it again I look forward to reading it to my little sister.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Timeless Treasure A delightful and entertaining childrens' book that has stood the test of time. Originally written in the 1930's, your children will enjoy this book again and again thanks to the timeless writing style of the author. Read aloud, this book is a pleasure for adults & children alike. The simplistic artwork encourages the imagination of readers and allows children to expand on both the story and Katy's world.
