Synopsis

Waking up to a snow-covered world, children dash outdoors:
 
“We’re silly-willy laughy, feeling slightly daffy, leaping through the snow—
Snow Happy!”
 
Follow along as they playfully romp through the freshly-fallen snow: sledding, shoveling, making snow angels, and throwing snowballs. Even the woodland animals are taking part in the winter fun!
 
At the end of a satisfying day, the children go home to shed wet clothes and enjoy hot cocoa by the fire, tired yet exhilarated. It’s what every snowy day should be!

Excerpt

We’re silly-willy laughy, feeling slightly daffy, leaping through the snow—
Snow Happy!
 
We’re skiing and we’re sliding. Down our hill we’re gliding. We trudge back up and shout—
Snow Happy!
 
Dogs are yippy-yapping, each one is snow-flake snapping, lapping up the snow—
Snow Happy!
