A clever take on this familiar childhood wish features an unexpected twist sure to surprise and delight school-age readers.
When the television weatherman predicts a big snowfall, the narrator gleefully imagines the fun-filled possibilities of an unscheduled holiday from school. But when the family wakes up the next morning, they are in for a disappointment. No snow! As the family members pile into the car so they won’t be late for school, an unexpected twist reveals who wanted the snow day most of all.
Adam Gustavson’s expressive illustrations comically capture the excitement of pure possibility in author Lester Laminack’s thoroughly original tale.
