School Library Journal Review

PreS-K-Reminiscent of Ezra Jack Keats's Snowy Day (Viking, 1962), this satisfying story takes a young dog on a universal winter adventure. Jumping out of his basket with a "Yes! Yes!," Kipper enthusiastically greets the day, where the snow awaits him. Upon discovering the joy of making body images (dog angels?), the pup runs off to find his best friend Tiger, a Scotty. The two spend the day on the hill, leaving behind a giant snow dog. Despite Tiger's repeated warning that a warm wind is coming, their creation lasts for three weeks. This book is fun, pleasurable, and pleasant. The precise, energetic language uses descriptive similes that will augment readers' appreciation of the wintry events. The large typeface is matched with clear, simple watercolor illustrations that are expressive and appealing. Perfect for group sharing, this title is sure to become a wintertime favorite.-Martha Topol, Traverse Area District Library, Traverse City, MI (c) Copyright 2010.

Horn Book Review

Kipper the dog and his canine friend Tiger have fun playing outside on a snowy day, especially after they discover that the snow sticks to Tiger's woolly clothes. By rolling down a hill all day, they gather enough snow to make a huge snow dog. The uncluttered page design, with plenty of white space, is especially appropriate for this simple winter story. Inkpen's illustrations charmingly convey the dogs' personalities. From HORN BOOK 1996, (c) Copyright 2010. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
