Feb. 17 Theme: LET IT SNOW

...or maybe it should be called: "Please, make it stop!" Boy oh boy, is it ever a snowy winter! On Wednesday, Feb. 17, we will read all about this beautiful white stuff and we'll make a pretty snowflake magnet.

There are so many great children's books about snow out there. One of my favorite classics is "The Snowy Day" by Ezra Jack Keats. What a wonderful story about discovering for yourself the magic of a snowy day. A newer snow book that I am currently in love with is simply called "Snow" by Cynthia Rylant. This beautiful book is pure poetry, and I look forward to sharing it with you all on Wednesday. Here are my favorite lines:

And then there is the snow
that begins to fall
in fat, cheerful flakes
while you are somewhere
you'd rather not be.
Maybe school.
Maybe work.
And this snow
tells you, as it falls, that
it will send you home early,
don't worry.
Home is where you
need to be,
and this snow
will take you there.
