The best snow day book since Ezra Jack Keats's THE SNOWY DAY... A young rabbit wakes up to wonderful news: A snow day! School is canceled, and the day that follows is rich with the magic and delight of the falling snow. And yet there is longing too, as the young rabbit and his mother wait for news of his father, grounded on a plane in a faraway city.... The news that his father will be home tomorrow gives the book a peaceful, comforting, and perfect ending.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A quiet story with nice textural painted illustrations Is there anything better than a snow day? The painted illustrations have a rough quality, but there is something about the texture that makes me really like them. I think it's wonderful to expose children to a variety of artistic styles and this is certainly different from most picture books on a child’s bookshelf. I’m also drawn to the high contrast of the night sky and the white snow. I love the framing of the images on the pages. I just wish the rabbit’s eyes weren’t red because I find them a little eerie. This is a quieter story and would work well as a nighttime read before bed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Will evoke memories Upon the first reading of this book, I absolutely loved the illustrations. They capture the essence of being trapped in a snow storm - the dark, dreary snow that seems like it will never end. But the young rabbit wants to play. He is disappointed that daddy's flight is delayed. But when the snow finally stops falling, mommy and bunny have great fun outside. Great illustrations and an excellent story. Even in translations this is a great book for young readers.
