What if it starts
to snow?
What do you do?
Where do you go?

What if it starts to snow. What do you do? Where do you go?" So begins this winter story, as each animal--from a mouse to a bear--tells us what it will do and where it will go when the snow starts to fall. Each takes cover in its own special home, except for one. Can you guess who?

Phillis Gershator's chant-along verse encourages listener participation, and is best enjoyed when read aloud. The inquisitive text and dashing illustrations by Martin Matje make this a delightful picture book for reading under the covers when the weather gets chilly. Poetic and imaginative, When It Starts to Snow celebrates winter in all its cozy glory.

Review:

"What if it starts to snow? What do you do? Where do you go?" So lilts the refrain in this delightful ode to winter wonderlands and freshly fallen snow. As the young narrator repeats his curious query, all manner of creatures answer in their own voices. "'I keep watch,' says the shiny black crow. 'Caw Caw Caw' when it starts to snow." "'I sit by the window,' says the cat. Big eyes glow when it starts to snow." Readers even learn the winter habits of otters and stoats in this informative, whimsical tale. Parisian illustrator Martin Matje's charming illustrations let the cool colors of winter evoke shivers and thoughts of warm mittens. A special bonus is the snowy scene where kids can find different animals hidden in a cave, rock pile, log, or hollow. "I can't sleep when the snow wants to play," says the young boy. "Three cheers for snow!" (Ages 4 to 8)
