" Great story to read to a class. Two kids and a dad are watching the news and see that a big snowstorm is predicted. Written all in dialogue, the narrator thinks of all the fun things they'll do on their snow day - sleep in, go sledding, make a fort, drink cocoa, etc. Next day, they do have to go to school, and they have to hurry, because it turns out the narrator is the dad who's a teacher. " said.

" The anticipation of a snow day is almost better than the snow day itself. "Wonderful, amazing, we-can't-go snow." Such plans are made! Such joy is described! Such panic the next morning when the snow doesn't come. "Drat! I really needed a snow day!"Lured into an assumption as to who the narrator of the story is, the reader is surprised by the twist at the end. Very cute and fabulous illustrations. " said.

" I found this book surprisingly cute, funny, and perfect for my snow-themed storytime. A father and his two children overhear the weatherman announce that snow is on the way and a fantasy about what the day could be used for follows. The words are sparse and very fun. There was a lot of opportunity for animated reading, and it held everyone's attention throughout. It was easier for the older, school-age children to relate, though even the younger ones understood. " said.

" Audience: This book is appropriate for 2nd-3rd grade because it does not have a lot of words and the vocabulary is not very challenging. However, I feel all elementary students would enjoy reading this book.Appeal: This book is very appealing to all elementary students because it is about a snow day which is something every child dreams about and can easily relate to.2010-2011 Golden Sower Nominee " said.

" The narrator believes there will be a snow day and she thinks of all the things she will do, only to find out the snow day is cancelled. The ending is surprising because you learn the narrator is a teacher. Often times children forget the teacher is human and has a life outside of school, this story gives teacher's and students common ground. I think this story would be great in the winter when the weather forecast is expecting snow. K-3 " said.

" I really enjoyed this book. The author and illustrator did a great job of showing what children and adults go through when they are expected a snow day from school. This book would be great to read to your kids or a classroom during the winter months. As a teacher you like to read books that interact with what is going on around you, and the book Snow Day gets kids excited about the possibility of snow days in the school year. " said.

"The anticipation... the excitement... the possibility of a "Snow Day" is something so many of us can relate to. This story definitely brought back that feeling of childhood and hoping more than anything for that announcement. Deciding whether to prepare the snow gear for play or stay cozy indoors. Peeking out the window throughout the night and of course watching TV for "the list" of closures. It's honestly a feeling that still remains decades later, an excitement that never fades. Well done Mr. Laminack... and we had TWO "Snow Days" this year! Yes!!!" said.

"Snow Day is such a fun book! As a snow day approaches the narrator describes all of the things that she is going to do with her day off of school. She is going to make snow angels, a snow man, she is going to make hot chocolate and snuggle with her family, and play. As she gets up the next morning and sees children with backpacks she realizes that the snow day was canceled. The narrator turns out to be a teacher. It's a fun spin on the story, and children get a good laugh out of it. I would read this book to 1-5. " said.
