Another classic Kipper title, enlarged and reissued for a new generation of children
Kipper loves the snow, and when he sees great white flakes tumbling down one morning, he can't wait to be out enjoying himself. Kipper's friend Tiger isn't nearly as good at snow games as Kipper is, because of his silly, woolly clothes—but they still manage to build a wonderful snowdog.

PreSchool-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.
