Charlie’s Corner: Let it Snow!

Welcome to Charlie’s Corner, named after my little boy. Here I will share baby/children’s product and book reviews.

Today I would like to share two library books we enjoyed, that had the same theme: snow!


The Snow Day
By: Komako Sakai

Published: January 2009
Published by: Arthur A. Levine Books
Format Read: Hardcover
Genre: Children’s Books, Picture Books

Rating: 3/5

Quick Thoughts

The Snow Day follows a little bunny, who wakes up to discover that his city is covered in snow and school is closed. No only is he stuck inside, but his Father’s plane is cancelled and he can’t make it home due to the storm. The little bunny and his mother spend the day waiting for the snow to stop. Children who live in apartments and cities will be able to relate to the little bunny. As will those whose parents often travel for work. This setting was a different perspective than is normally seen in children’s books, which was refreshing. My toddler and I enjoyed reading this story over and over again. The illustrations were dreary in colour, however it fit with the tone of the snow storm.


Just a Snowman
(Little Critter)
By: Mercer Mayer

Published: September 2004
Published by: HarperFestival
Format Read: Paperback
Genre: Children’s Books, Picture Books, Series

Rating: 4/5

Quick Thoughts

My toddler and I enjoyed being back in the world of Mercer Mayer’s Little Critter series. In this installment, Little Critter is enjoying a snow day and his one goal is to just make a snowman. However his friends and family keep him busy with other fun activities including: skating and snowball fights. As to be expected, this story is delightful and chalk full of funny irony. We look forward to reading more Little Critter books in the future.
