The Snow Day
The Snow Day | Komako Sakai
10 posts | 3 read | 1 to read
The best snow day book since Ezra Jack Keats's THE SNOWY DAY... A young rabbit wakes up to wonderful news: A snow day! School is canceled, and the day that follows is rich with the magic and delight of the falling snow. And yet there is longing too, as the young rabbit and his mother wait for news of his father, grounded on a plane in a faraway city.... The news that his father will be home tomorrow gives the book a peaceful, comforting, and perfect ending.

It‘s been a snowy day here in my part of Boston. So it‘s been a good day to sit & read. My reading buddy is hoping for an early spring.

This book is simple but heartfelt. School is canceled because it‘s snowing. But you can not play outside, and Daddy‘s plane can‘t take off. This book fosters a peace and a calmness that comes along with a quite snowy night. The illustrations are not typical of modern picture books, but their very uniqueness helps the reader feel at peace, and cozy, and in the presence of others who care.

#WinterWonderland Day 10: Perfect for #FirstSnowInBrooklyn. It has been snowing all evening and everyone‘s stuck at home. This bit of information was met with great excitement by our little bunny who was so excited to make snow dumplings and snow angels. The narrative and the haunting artwork communicate that sense of isolation and peculiar aloneness that winter can oftentimes bring. My review: https://wp.me/pDlzr-5TH

Despite all the Dickensian imagery of snowy streets, we don‘t often get snow in the south of England. Particularly where I live- something about being too close to the sea. But today things have slowed right down and I‘m loving it!

julesG It's so nice when everything is blanketed in snow and life calms down. 6y
LitLogophile One of my favorite things about litsy is learning fun facts like these about where different people live 😂 6y
Bookworm-Bobbie @LitLogophile I love that too! I think the last time we had snow like this was 8years ago. People in more snow adapted places are probably laughing at how rubbish we‘re handling this 😂😂 6y
Caroline2 We've had loads here in Essex! Can barely get the door open! 😲 6y

In light of today's unexpected snow (half) day I've corrected my February stats. Here we go again...sorry!
My favourite was without a doubt The Tsar of Love and Techno but honourable mentions go to Dracula and Folk by Zoe Gilbert.

2BR02B Very impressive! 👏👏 6y

Okay, this is only tangentially related to books (there are some miniature books in it). This is a little mouse 🐭 box theatre kit that I finished today. I think it makes a cozy reading nook. 📚

Oryx So pretty 6y
LeahBergen It‘s so cute! 6y

For those keeping track of our snowmageddon travels, we have arrive at our destination and checked into the hotel. We gave a few hours before the show so it‘s naptime/reading time as we recover from the snowy drive. PS, it‘s not snowing here at all.

CoverToCoverGirl Happy you arrived at your destination safe and sound. (edited) 6y
CocoReads Thanks. Little worried about making it home tomorrow but hoping it eases up. Almost a foot when we left at 10:30 this morning and 14 inches at home about an hour ago with more continuing to fall. 😬 6y

Snow day!!

I feel so bad for my kid, who loves snow days, but still has a fever (Day 4) from the flu and is pretty much just hanging out in bed.

I am happy that school was cancelled so she isn‘t missing another day and more makeup work, but boy, her lackluster response to a snow day is so depressing. 😞

She doesn‘t even feel like reading. 🤭😮

IamIamIam Aww, feel better soon!!! 6y
alisiakae @Jennick2004 @Kaylamburson @Tamra @Ruri_kaichou Thank you! She rarely gets sick (first time in 3 years for something other than strep!), and this is Day 4, so we‘re all ready for it to pass! She and I both have major cabin fever, lol. 6y
CocoReads Hope she feels better soon. Lack of reading interest is always a bad sign for me! 6y
JacqMac Aww... that‘s so sad. Hope she feels better soon. 6y
cobwebmoth I hope she starts to feel better soon. Having a sick kid is so hard. *hugs* 6y
DivaDiane Aw, poor kid! Audiobook? 6y
AmyG I hope she is better soon. 6y
alisiakae @CocoReads @JacqMac @cobwebmoth @DivaDiane @AmyG She feels better now that the Ibuprofen has kicked in. I just wish this fever would go away for good! But she‘s well enough to take a little jaunt into the snow, but still bummed that she can‘t play with her friends. 6y
LauraBeth Poor baby - hope she feels better soon 6y
kspenmoll Hope she breaks her fever soon. This flu season has been a tough one. Glad she could get out in snow! 6y
[DELETED] 3803335244 I‘m so sorry! Prayers for quick healing 6y

Big thanks to my Dad, for the grumbling drive out here. 😛 Indeed, I'll be taking the bus, over walking to work. #LitsyPartyofOne
