by Hiroe Nakata,Patricia Hubbell

Waking up to a snow-covered world, children dash outdoors: “We’re silly-willy laughy, feeling slightly daffy, leaping through the snow— Snow Happy!” Follow along as they playfully romp through the freshly-fallen snow: sledding, shoveling, making snow angels, and throwing snowballs. Even the woodland animals are taking part in the winter fun!  At the end of a satisfying day, the children go home to shed wet clothes and enjoy hot cocoa by the fire, tired yet exhilarated. It’s what every snowy day should be!From the Hardcover edition.

Received as promised in new condition. Nice story and great illustrations.Looking forward to sharing it with my Grand-kids.
Very cute illustrations! That's why I purchased the book actually. The book goes through with all the fun things you can do as kids in the snow and being happy even though you many be wet and cold you can still be positive and happy. Having fun in the snow.
What a cheerful book about winter! I love Pat Hubbell's poetry so bought this on pre-order. It's just delightful. The illustrations are lively and elegant. Children will love to join in on the refrain "Snow Happy!"
I recently bought this for my 19 month old while at a children's bookstore, mostly because it featured a snowman on the front, and she is VERY into snowmen right now. (It is, after all, January in Boston, where we live!) I thought the illustrations on the front were cute, and so did she, so I bought it, without even reading the text inside, which is unusual for me, because I tend to be very picky aobut children's book purchases.

I read it to her the minute we got home, and she really likes it. She has recently become interested in some "bigger" kids' books, mixed in with her little board books, so I try to find some with simpler, shorter language, and beautiful illustrations. This fits the bill perfectly. For a toddler discovering the winter weather and what it entails, it is fun to see the illustrator detail all of the postive aspects of the snow we have piled up on our streets, and all of the fun that can be had in it. As for the words, I have to say, I don't LOVE the refrain "snow happy" (intead of "so happy"), because the play on words is something that I don't think my daughter really gets. But, she will get them eventually, and the words are simple and cute.

This is a wonderful "wintertime" treat-- a great book to give as a gift for the holidays, or a winter birthday or Valentine's day. Good purchase. Another book that we both love, in a similar vein (rain instead of snow, simple language, beautiful illustrations) is Raindrop, Plop! by Wendy Cheyette Lewison. Also a very cozy book.
This is a story time natural! Illustrations with lots of movement, spare text told in a great rhythm, and a repeating refrain that all the kids can join in on. What more can you ask for? The author does a great job in creating that natural read aloud flow and including all the stuff that's best about winter; from building snowmen, snowball fights, to the hot chocolate when you are done playing. The rhymes are excellent and never forced, and it won't take much convincing before you will have kids shouting just how Snow Happy they are. A great choice for any preschool story time group. Recommended.
The students liked it, rhymes provided language discussion. Colorful and well illustrated.
Okay, I may be influenced by the fact that I LOVE winter, but my 3-year-old granddaughter LOVES this book, especially since we read it to her with great expression and comment about the illustrations WHICH ARE FABULOUS water color paintings. There is so much going on in the pictures that it would be senseless to not discuss them, like the squirrels participating in the snowball fights or the birdies making snow angels. We once read this story 10 times during one overnight visit, and we read it all during the summer so she won't forget what snow is like. (We're in Michigan.) I also bought one of these for her house. Probably wouldn't make much sense to a little one who has never experienced snow.
