About the Author:

Jan Carr is the author of numerous children's books, including Swine Divine, illustrated by Robert Bender, "Dark Day, Light Night," illustrated by James E. Ransome, and "The Nautre of the Beast," illustrated by G. Brian Karas. She lives in New York City with her family, where they frequently get frozen noses and tingly toeses.

Dorothy Donohue earned her Masters degree at Rhode Island School of Design and has since illustrated more than a half a dozen books for children, including "Believing Sophie," by Hazel J. Hutchins, and "Turkey Pox," by Laurie Halse Anderson. She lives in Boulder, Colorado, with her dogs.

From School Library Journal:

PreS Three round-faced, cut-paper kids bedecked in colorful patterned clothing make their way outside for a snow-filled afternoon. Throwing snowballs, building a snowman, sledding, and skating occupy their time until they head back inside for cocoa and "Winter warm." The story is written as a poem with clipped, clumsy phrases in four-line stanzas. The author attempts to spice up the uninspired rhythm with energetic words, but fails: "Slide, collide/Get good at gliding/Hit a skid/Whoops! All a-sprawl!" The collage illustrations also work hard to create a sense of fun, with a sweater-clad dog added for entertainment, but they, too, are oddly deliberate. The kids and even the swirling snow seem stiff and frozen on the page. Ezra Jack Keats's classic The Snowy Day (Viking, 1962) is a better choice for exploring the joys of winter.
