The Snow Day Ballet by Robin Farley -- ADVISABLE

Farley, Robin Mia: The Snow Day Ballet. PICTURE BOOK. Harper Festival, 2014. $4.99. Content: G.

Mia has big plans to go into the city to watch a ballet, but a huge snowstorm makes it impossible to drive. Her creative parents are determined to alleviate her disappointment, though, and soon all three of them have made it a snow day to remember. Contains a sheet of stickers with directions for placing them on the last page.

The colorful illustrations and ballet-obsessed kitty will likely appeal to many girls, and it is fun to watch Mia learn to have a good day despite her thwarted plans. Some of her activities may even inspire children on their own snow days.

Pre-K, EL (K-3) -- ADVISABLE. Reviewer: Caryn
