Illustrated by Hiroe Nakata
A series of interlinked wintertime poems, about snowfall, missing mittens and breathtaking sled rides. A little girl wakes up to see her city blanketed in snow, gets warmly dressed and goes out for a walk with her mom... On the way they find a lone mitten in the snow, then catching up to the boy who lost it, they give it back to him and then play outside all morning long. Later everyone goes to a big party with lots of kids, parents, warm drinks and yummy treats. The poems are uniformly nice and have a fair amount of literary heft; Hiroe Nakata's artwork perfectly compliments the text... She is one of the finest artists in the field these days, and helps the book evoke a wintery sense of wonder. (B+)
