Snow Day by Sam Usher
Published by Penguin Random House Australia
This picture book depicts a sweet story about a boy desperately waiting for his Grandad to get ready so they can go out in the newly fallen snow. His Granddad is annoyingly slow as the boy watches his friends, some neighboured pets and some other unexpected animals start playing in the snow. Does this boy and his grandad finally make it out to the snow and will it be worth the wait?!
For most Australian kids who live in suburban or rural areas this book gives an insight into the delight of waking up one morning and finding freshly fallen snow so pure and white outside your bedroom window. Oh how it would beckon to be played in as fast as you can!
