Snow (Sunburst Books) by Uri Shulevitz

No one wishes for snow quite like a child.  As soon as the first snowflake begins to fall, the boy and his dog are ready for snow.  But all the adults he encounters, whether in person, or on the television, or radio, gravely predict there is no snow.  They are all proven wrong as the white snow blankets the village.

The colors are lovely.  The snow is lovely.  The Caldecott Honor seal on the front attests to that.  The only complaint I have is that some of the adults were drawn in a way that I personally find creepy. It’s simply a style that I don’t like.  So between the lady with the umbrella and the moon-faced Mother Goose, I probably would have had nightmares if I were still a child. I’m suspecting that most people would not be in the least bothered by this.
