9780060241292: First Snow

The first snow has fallen.
The mice children go sledding
with Grandma and Grandpa.
But at the top of the hill,
who will go first?
Bitty, the smallest mouse,
is scared.
When she tries,

WHEEEEEE,

she finds that sledding is the best!

Caldecott Medalist Emily Arnold McCully captured the chills and thrills of a first sled ride when first snow was published in 1985. She has added words and created new pictures for this handsome larger edition, a companion to picnic.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 1 From the moment children see the littlest mouse from Picnic (Harper, 1984) peering out her window into the cool, clean freshness of the snow to the last look at her sound asleep at the supper table, they will be entranced by the mouse family's activities in the first snow of the season. Loaded into the old red truck, the mice children set out for a day of wintering with their grandparents. After climbing, ice skating, making angels and a snowmouse, the young mice line up their sleds for the descent. Finally, only the littlest mouse, clad in her hot pink hat and muffler, is left at the top of the hill. Using alternating visual perspectives from the little mouse's view from the top of the hill to the beckoning grandparent's view from the bottom of the hill, the mouse's quandary is felt. Once the initial swoosh to the bottom is achieved, the pages burst with hot pink as the little mouse climbs and rides up and down the slopes. A wordless story filled with subtleties of mood and dynamics of action. An excellent book to share with children, and they will also appreciate the flow of the line, mood and action independently.
