Big Snow

Big Snow
by Jonathan Bean
Farrar Straus Giroux, 2013. Unpaged. Picture Book

     Anxious for winter fun to begin, David asks his mother when it will snow. She doesn't know, but asks him to help her make cookies while he is waiting for the storm to begin. But the flour reminds him of snow so he runs outside to check.  Then the cleaner foam reminds him of snow while he he is helping his mother clean the bathroom, and the white sheets remind him of snow when he is helping her change the bedding. Suddenly there is a loud stomping outside the house--Dad is home early.  And why is he home early?  It's snowing! This delightful picture book combines word and text to charming effect as a young boy takes joy in the season, and the weather thereof.
