Waiting for Snow by Marsha Diane Arnold- OPTIONAL

Arnold, Marsha Diane. Waiting for Snow, PICTURE BOOK. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2016. $14.99. Badger just cannot wait until it snows. Hedgehog keeps reminding Badger that snow will come in time, they just have to be patient. But Badger doesn’t want to wait any longer. Badger tries banging on pots and pans to wake up the sky and get it to snow. The other animals help come up with ideas like dancing a snow dance and throwing pebbles in the sky to knock holes into it for snow to come out. When Badger is encouraged to wear his pajamas backward, that seems to do the trick because there is snow falling in the morning. But it just turns out to be sugar his friends are sprinkling above him. The friends help keep Badger busy until it finally snows. I love the concept for this book and it was substantial enough, but I thought that the organization and illustrations could have been better. PRE-K, EL (K-3)- OPTIONAL.
