"It's a snow day!" The schools are closed! Robby's sisters want to stay inside, and their parents are busy, but Robby and his dog Zippy know what to do: run and kick and lick and skid in the new snow. Their enthusiasm soon involves the whole family in a spirited snowball fight and a snug evening by the fire. Barbara M. Joosse's exuberant story and Jennifer Plecas's lively illustrations capture the pure fun of an unexpected winter holiday.
"A delightful picture book that could be used for whole-language units on snow or families, and as a good read-aloud for its expressive language."
