Dixie and the Best Day Ever by Grace Gilman -- OPTIONAL

Gilman, Grace Dixie and the Best Day Ever, illustrated by Jacqueline Rogers. EARLY READER. HarperCollins I Can Read, 2014. $16.99. Content: G.

Emma has to write a poem for homework, but she can't think of the perfect topic. One look outside tells her she'll probably have a snow day anyway, so she puts her writing aside and goes to bed. Lucky for her, she does indeed have the next day off school. After hours of playing in the snow with her dog, she finally knows exactly what to write about: today! Although it's not great to see procrastination rewarded, this is still a lively story and it's nice to see Emma enjoying her creative writing time after her day in the snow.
