really liked it
bookshelves: caldecott-challenge, picturebooks

1949 Caldecott Medal

Favorite illustration: p. 30-31 Two page spread of the houses shrouded in snow.

Favorite line: p. 34 The sparrows, the chick-a-dees, the cardinals, and a lonely robin scrambled out from their shelters and flew from tree to tree, trying to find a place to perch on the heavy snow-laden branches.

Kid-appeal: My seven-year old loved this one and was her favorite of the stack we read (all 1940s Caldecott books). Great for animal lovers, and would be excellent in a teaching unit on snow/winter.
