The trees are bare, the days are short, and the first sparkling snowflakes are falling from the sky.
Master of rhyme Jack Prelutsky creates a flurry of winter verse, just right for ushering in the season of ice and snow. Lively, warmth-filled illustrations by Yossi Abolafia enhance these sixteen delightful poems.

Kindergarten-Grade 3–With new illustrations by Abolafia, this book has an updated, colorful appearance but the same kid-friendly poems as in the original edition (HarperCollins, 1984). The selections will still tickle funny bones: There are glaciers in my stomach,/there is sleet inside my bones,/I am colder than the contents/of a million ice-cream cones (I Am Freezing!) and I waddle, then I flop,/I'm the living, breathing model/of a walking clothing shop (My Mother's Got Me Bundled Up). The quieter poems are just as appealing: I wondered at the beauty/of its intricate design,/I breathed, the snowflake vanished,/but for moments, it was mine (A Snowflake Fell). The watercolor-and-ink paintings are warm and filled with expressive faces and animated scenes. Young readers will enjoy this collection on their own, but the bouncing rhymes make the selections easy choices for readers theater presentations and for sharing aloud.–Lee Bock, Glenbrook Elementary School, Pulaski, WI
