Young dancer Sofia wakes up to a quiet, white world — it’s a snow day! She makes her way outside to the neighborhood park, where a field awaits her, white and shining and open. It isn’t long before the rest of the neighborhood wakes its sleepy head — and the other kids make their way to the park, scattering all of Sofia’s beautiful silence.
But with the help of a new young friend, Sofia is ready to show everyone what a snow dancer can do on a perfect day like this. With lyrical language and gorgeous art that beautifully captures the grace and movement of Sofia's winter dance, this book sparkles with all the joy and beauty of a snow day... and invites young readers to imagine the possibilities in that blanket of white.
"[Sofia's] solitary dance comes to an abrupt end when the field is overtaken by a horde of neighborhood children. Amid the chaos, one tiny, brown-skinned child in pigtails and fairy wings sees Sofia’s crestfallen expression, which leads to willowy Sofia’s teaching the little one to be a snow dancer too. Together, the new friends execute an impromptu pas de deux that transitions into an energetic group snowball fight until it’s time to go home.... An exuberant read-aloud extolling the glory of dance and snow days." — Kirkus Reviews
