Jean Van Leeuwen is the author of more than fifty children's books, including picture books, Easy-to-Read books, and middle-grade fiction. Ms. Van Leeuwen now lives in another small town north of New York City with her husband, Bruce Gavril. She has two grown children, David and Elizabeth, and a young grandchild, who will surely inspire more stories.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 2-Four easy-to-read stories that flow smoothly and read aloud well. They feature typical outdoor adventures following a big snowstorm-making snowballs and a "snow pig," building a fort, playing with icicles, and sledding. The reassuring presence of parents eases the anxiety of preschooler Amanda (she sinks in the snowdrifts and is worried about the steep sledding hill) and helps her and her brother Oliver gently resolve conflicts. Since family fun is the order of the day, children and parents alike will enjoy this reading experience. The charming watercolor and pencil illustrations add to the sensitive and funny vignettes. An outstanding selection for beginning-to-read collections.
