In Review: The Snow Day


The Snow Day by Komako Sakai

This was a sweet, simple story about a little one staying inside for the day because of snow. Although the story is very minimalist, the artwork is lovely to look at. Sketchy and patchy with color, it reminds me a a lot of the artwork of Suzy Lee, artist of WAVE, which I reviewed awhile ago. The story is also good for either gender, as the story is about a bunny, and one could guess as to if a boy or girl. The clothing and speech of the little one could really pass for either or, making this a great gift for a boy or a girl starting school or for a winter present.
Very few lines, the story is mostly told through the pictures, and it is well done. A cute read from the library, for sure
