How cold does it have to be before Alaskan kids stay inside for recess? For many schools, if it is colder than 20 below zero, they stay indoors; otherwise, it's outside for frosty fun! This is is a photo book with text written from a child's perspective on what kids to during recess at 20 below. We see kids getting ready for recess putting on layers of outdoor clothing, and then somebody has to go to the bathroom! Going sledding, swinging, running around outside with frosted-up eyelashes and face masks. Then the aftermath: static hair after a hat's been pulled off, red cheeks and noses, etc. Young readers will delight in images of peers frolicking in the cold and during their favorite time of the school day!

Cindy Lou Aillaud: There is a certain magic that happens in winter when the temperatures drop to colder than 20 below. When the thermometer shows 50 degrees BELOW zero, it’s really time for the fun to begin. Did you know that a banana can freeze hard enough to drive a nail into wood? That you can throw a cup of boiling water into the air and it vaporizes into a cloud of crystals while making a whoosh sound? That you can blow a soap bubble with a wand and the bubble will freeze like glass?
During our coldest winter months, kids must be concerned about safety. They have to dress warm enough so as not to get frostbite. They also must be careful of wild animals all year long. Moose can be dangerous if they feel threatened and, of course, bears are a hazard—especially if you get between a mom and her cubs! In the summer, we have to be careful to get enough sleep. Since it is light all night, it’s easy to stay up too late!
