The little girl in this story is excited that she will "finally get to help" her father, a snowplow driver, on a very special mission to clear the roads. They're not going to be deterred if the weather gets worse: "Frosty crystals chase and spin. / Snowplow shifts and tunnels in." Will they make it to the train station in time? And who's waiting for them? Cozy up with this lyrical wintry journey through a snowstorm.
With beautifully written rhyming text that's just right for one or two readers, by accomplished author April Prince and illustrated with lively, expressive paintings by the beloved illustrator Christine Davenier, his timeless seasonal classic captures the thrill of snow and the warmth of family.
"Conveyed in expressive couplets, the well-paced rhymes admirably evoke a sense of urgency about their trip and vividly paint a scene of the worsening wintry weather.... Swift, impressionistic sketches filled with soft pastel-hued washes create pastoral snowy scenes that contrast with the warmer, more saturated domestic scenes and with the thick-lined, cherry-red snowplow." — Kirkus Reviews
