Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Awesome Book! Dancing through the snow was about a young orphan who gets dumped back from her foster home a week before Christmas. Soon, she finds a dog also in need of a good home just like her.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a beautiful story My grade six students read this book before Christmas. Even my most prolific and fussy readers found it absolutely endearing. Jean Little has written a fabulous book. I personally read it from cover to cover in one day. I think it appealed to me the teacher just as much as it appealed to my studetns. Get to know Mia, the rejected orphan. See who will love her and save her.
