Editorial Reviews

An acknowledged master of "spare" and "poetic," the Newbery Medalist delivers, her words drifting and blowing and coming 'round to the children who "love the snow better than anyone else does" in the end." - Kirkus Reviews " Snow is not an uncommon subject of picture books, but few have both the grace and exuberance of this lovely collaboration of Rylant's evocative words and Stringer's entrancing paintings." - Booklist, starred review"Rylant and Stringer (previously paired for Scarecrow) celebrate winter wonderlands in a cozy, lyrical tribute. . . . Like snow, the ending achieves a perfect silence." - Publishers Weekly ". . . hymned in Rylant's gentle, rhythmical prose . . . the shining star of this book is really illustrator Lauren Stringer's art, in small panels and double spreads, hallucinatory vivid in pastel shades of pale blue, white, and rose. The acrylic paintings blend the richness of oils with the airiness of watercolor. Stringer's snow is dream snow, childhood's magical snow, which, as Rylant reminds us, is the best-loved snow." - Boston Globe "Rylant and Stringer (previously paired for Scarecrow ) celebrate winter wonderlands in a cozy, lyrical tribute. . . . Like snow, the ending achieves a perfect silence.." - Publishers Weekly ( 10/6/08)"
