Reader Reviews

"An engaging sweet story - kids will love it"

This story is written in the first person by Pnina, a little girl who lives in Israel. She shows us her family through her hand drawn pictures. Pnina is intrigued by a photo of her Dad when he was little, living in Canada. He’s building a snowman. She wants to see snow, but it never snows in Israel, or so she thinks. One night, Pnina gets a big surprise, as her parents drive to Jerusalem to see a real “snowstorm”.

The illustrations show us the joy of seeing snow for the first time. The portrayal of Panina’s close knit family is expressed with love in a style that feels authentic.

As a former teacher, I highly recommend this joyful book to teachers, parents, and grandparents. It’s a great “read aloud” and would also be a fine addition to a home or school library for independent reading for children in the primary grades.
