When the Snow Is Deeper Than My Boots Are Tall

Henry Holt and Co. (BYR)
When the Snow Is Deeper Than My Boots Are Tall is a charming rhyming picture book celebrating the fun of snow and the coziness of winter.
Find a frosty window./ Watch the flakes fall./ Look! The snow is deeper than my toes are tall.
With young, rhyming verse and bright illustrations, Jean Reidy and Joey Chou captures the joy and excitement of a big snowfall. As the snow climbs over a boy's toes, ankles, shins, and boots, there's more and more fun to be had—snowmen, sledding, snow angels, and, finally, a cup of hot cocoa by a warm fire.
