There’s nothing like a snow day!

Looking out on their newly frosted windows one morning, two young brothers watch millions of pure white snowflakes float down. Everything is covered in a thick blanket of snow. Will it be deep enough? Soon come the two magical words they’ve been waiting for: SNOW DAY! That means school is cancelled!

They scramble into their coats and boots ― and head out to play hockey and tag and build a snow fort. Then, with stinging faces and frozen toes, it’s time for a hot chocolate break and drying wet mittens. Toasty warm once again, they head back outside for more fun in the snow. When at last it’s time for sleep, they fall into bed, exhausted.

Outside, the snow comes drifting down again . . . Will they awake to yet another snow day?


PRAISE for Snow Day!

“[Zimmermann’s] paintings. . . lovingly depict the beauty of a thick snowfall on a small town. The frisky and affectionately portrayed animals also add a visual subtext of family fun, safety, and warmth.” Quill and Quire

“Zimmermann’s lively illustrations capture the tingling blues and whites of a snowy day and the excitement of a playful romp through a wintry world.” — Books in Canada

“The illustrations fill every bit of each page, just as the snow covers everything in town. Zimmermann captures the exuberance of the children and dogs frolicking in the fluffy snow, the soft luminous grey of the sky during a daytime snowfall, the glow of the indoor lights spilling onto the slopes of an enormous snow fort. . . . A thoroughly enjoyable book.” — Children’s Book News
