Booklist Review

PreS^-K. Animals in a natural setting anticipate winter in this fast-moving picture book as an owl, some geese, a moose, a bear, some bunnies, and a fox all show their feelings about the coming snow. Some embrace it; some resent it ("My fur looks like fire, against this white snow," bristles Fox); others just deal with it. The bunnies blend right in with the snow, as their coats have changed color for the winter. Bear hibernates. The geese fly south. They will all get through the winter, anticipating spring. Stojic's sparse text reveals much about seasonal cycles, and her rich double-page acrylic paintings capture the physicality of the animals in a brief, transforming moment in time. --Kathy Broderick


Publisher's Weekly Review

This season, several companion titles compete for readers' attention. Having tackled Rain on the African savanna, Manya Stojic looks at how animals respond when winter weather hits in Snow. Bear yawns and hibernates, Fox grumbles about losing his camouflage, and the geese head south, honking "So long, snow." In the acrylic paintings, Stojic's broad brushstrokes emphasize the animals' snuggly allure. (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved


School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 2-On a cold, gray day, Owl ruffles her feathers and wisely announces that snow is on its way. The geese fly away, a bear yawns and prepares for hibernation, a mother hare draws her babies close and tells them that it's time for their white winter coats, etc. Snow covers the forest and Owl announces that even though it will stay for a long time, "-one spring day, it will drip drop melt away." There is a refined, melodic rhythm to the spare text, and the graceful, internal rhymes are never forced. The oil paintings elegantly match the lovely language. Close-up portraits depict the animals as they gaze at the cloudy skies and frolic in the first snow. In the early pages, golden autumn leaves fall in the background; then, a spread on which white text appears on a black background and no animals are present clearly defines the separation of seasons. This gentle celebration is ideal for storytime sharing.-Shawn Brommer, South Central Library System, Madison, WI (c) Copyright 2010.
