Chapman, Cheryl (1994) Snow on Snow on Snow New York: Dial

Snow on Snow on Snow is an incredibly simple book that follows the story of a boy who goes out to play with his friends and loses his dog.

The story is simple and enjoyable enough for a child reader. It's use of repetitive language is engaging and poetic in a non-complex way, and it can easily be read by a beginning reader. The illustrations ar

This would be great for a middle school poetry unit. This book is based on Rossetti's poem "In the Bleak Midwinter." It'd be fun to do a project like this...choose your favorite poem and wrote a children's book based on it or based on your favorite line of the poem.

I read this today at the library with my 3 and 4 year-old boys. They enjoyed it but I wouldn't say they were overawed. The patterning is good, the illustrations are simple, but not terribly impressive (clearly influenced by Ezra Jack Keats, though). All told, it was a fun romp with a satisfying ending, but not a keeper.

I really liked reading this book. I would use this story in my class, if my students are learning about weather. I would especially use this story, if we are focusing on winter. I would mainly use this to introduce weather. It would be more of a opening or attention grabber to discuss another lesson about winter.

Just enough suspense to keep the preschoolers attention. Will the boy find his dog, Clarence after they've had a fun sled ride down the hill? Will they live "happily ever after, ever after, ever after"? Read this one to your favorite preschooler and find out!

It was interesting to read this with the kids and see who was able to catch on to the semi-abstract wordplay (blankets on blankets on blankets) more quickly than others. Plus I enjoyed the textured, colorful illustration

A baffling book. There's no real story; just a long succession of things on things on things. In the end the bright, blobby artwork loses its appeal.

remniscent of the snowy day...a boy loses, then recovers him dog while sledding in the snow.

Fun storytime book that can be interactive with a dog puppet!
