Book Talk Thursday ~ Snow

Here I am watching the beautiful snow fall on Book Talk Thursday.

And I can't help but write about a book that is perfect for the snow and a snow day:  Snow by Cynthia Rylant.
I absolutely love Cynthia Rylant's style and this book is beautifully written and illustrated. In the book, she tells about how children feel when it snows. I love how she captures the essence of how children feel on these fun snow days.  I told my husband today that it can be this cold outside with no snow, and the kids refuse to go outside.  Add some snow, and they will stay outside for forever!  My son and his friends were outside for 4 hours this morning and have gone back out again.  Now my daughter is ready to go back out in it!  They will sleep well tonight!

When I use this with my students, we will talk about what we did on our snow days.  I think on Monday when we return all of my groups will do some kind of writing about what they did on their snow days.  I cannot wait to hear what their days were like.  What a great keepsake and memory they will have of such a fun couple of days.

Since spring is right around the corner, this will be my last winter Book Talk Thursday.  I had a different book planned for today but had to take the time to share the beauty of the snow with all of my readers.  I leave you with a picture of the beautiful snow falling in my backyard.  Enjoy and stay warm!

  1. I actually haven't read this one yet, but I keep seeing it. I think it's time to check it out! We read "Snow Day" in 3rd grade on Wednesday in preparation for the "big snow".
