Cold Snap

By Eileen Spinelli. Illus. by Marjorie Priceman. Knopf, $17.99 (9780375857003). PreS–Gr. 2.


The townsfolk in Toby Mills enjoy winter fun in a snowy landscape but not the bitter, relentless freeze of a cold snap. While the lively text details individual characters’ experiences, vibrant gouache paintings bring each scene to life.
