    When I shared this with the library story time crowd I began with the page BEFORE the title page which shows a window in nine phases. I said, "Sometimes before you go to bed you might look out the window. It's pitch black outside and you see ONE snowflake (pointing to the first window)...

    A nice rhyming story about winter. Would be a nice read aloud for a winter themed story time or to children who need to be reminded of all of the fun things you can do in the season. The illustrations are great. One thing I would comment on is technically winter doesn't begin until ...

    This would be fun to do in storytime with two readers... one to be the enthusiastic boy and one to be the skeptic girl. This could pair well with the new You Make Me Smile for an enchanting winter storytime :) ...

    4.5. Ah - this is a good one! A happy brother who loves the snow and everything surrounding it, and a grumpy sister who doesn't care for it at all - until the end. Their words are in different colors (blue and read) and the four-line stanzas all gently rhyme. Super book! ...

    The beautiful illustrations and cover art enhance this rambunctious ode to everything winter. A young boy works hard to convince his sister that winter is really wonderful and fun. ...

    A brother and sister have very different reactions to the newly fallen snow outside. The boy opens the curtains and quickly announces that ?Winter is for snow!? But his younger sister is not convinced. The boy tries and tries to explain how wonderful winter can be, but she remains ...

    In rhyming text, a cold-loving brother and his snow-hating sister argue cheerfully about the pros and cons of winter. Will they be able to see eye-to-eye? The rhyme scheme works well overall, and the illustrations are cheerful, imaginative, and often humorous. This book would be esp...

    A young boy extolls all of winter's virtues to his skeptical sister. His enthusiastic litany of the fabulous things winter has to offer finally wins her over at the end. The cartoonish illustrations are charming. ...

    4.5 Stars This isn't getting 4.5 stars because it is a local Park City Utah Author (He lives 15 minutes from me) it is actually an great book! Love the story!! Love the pictures! ROBERT COME TO THE WASATCH COUNTY LIBRARY!! We would love it!!! ...

    Good rhymey book that centers on an argument between two siblings about whether winter is awesome or awful. I wanted there to be a space for it to be ok to be team not-awesome in the end. Still, a fun one for winter. ...

    A nice rhyming story about winter. Would be a nice read aloud for a winter themed story time or to children who need to be reminded of all of the fun things you can do in the season. The illustrations are great. One thing I would comment on is technically winter doesn't begin until ...

    This would be fun to do in storytime with two readers... one to be the enthusiastic boy and one to be the skeptic girl. This could pair well with the new You Make Me Smile for an enchanting winter storytime :) ...

    4.5. Ah - this is a good one! A happy brother who loves the snow and everything surrounding it, and a grumpy sister who doesn't care for it at all - until the end. Their words are in different colors (blue and read) and the four-line stanzas all gently rhyme. Super book! ...

    The beautiful illustrations and cover art enhance this rambunctious ode to everything winter. A young boy works hard to convince his sister that winter is really wonderful and fun. ...

    A brother and sister have very different reactions to the newly fallen snow outside. The boy opens the curtains and quickly announces that ?Winter is for snow!? But his younger sister is not convinced. The boy tries and tries to explain how wonderful winter can be, but she remains ...

    In rhyming text, a cold-loving brother and his snow-hating sister argue cheerfully about the pros and cons of winter. Will they be able to see eye-to-eye? The rhyme scheme works well overall, and the illustrations are cheerful, imaginative, and often humorous. This book would be esp...

    A young boy extolls all of winter's virtues to his skeptical sister. His enthusiastic litany of the fabulous things winter has to offer finally wins her over at the end. The cartoonish illustrations are charming. ...

    As someone who dislikes cold weather and snow (Yes, I know. I shouldn't live in Michigan then) I completely understood the sister's resistance and dislike for it. I would've liked her to dig her heels in a little stronger. She gave in a little to quickly for my liking. ...

    A fun rhyming text story about a boy, who loves winter and everything it means, and his not-so-happy-about-winter sister. Great illustrations, this fun to read book will be on my storytime shelf very soon. ...

    You betcha it is! My library branch could do this book as reader's theater or at a storytime as there are two definite camps regarding this season... Loved it - it brought out all the fun and charm of winter. ...

    4.5 Stars This isn't getting 4.5 stars because it is a local Park City Utah Author (He lives 15 minutes from me) it is actually an great book! Love the story!! Love the pictures! ROBERT COME TO THE WASATCH COUNTY LIBRARY!! We would love it!!! ...

    Good rhymey book that centers on an argument between two siblings about whether winter is awesome or awful. I wanted there to be a space for it to be ok to be team not-awesome in the end. Still, a fun one for winter. ...

    Another case of do not knock it until you try it. Winter is snow. Neubecker with his illustrations and ode challenges the reader to go forth and make the best of it. ...

    CUTE! Didn't realize that there was ANYTHING to like about snow, but ok. Loved the illustrations and the creative rhyme. ...

    Absolutely love this book! A great mentor for opinion/persuasive writing and anyone who loves the snow. ...

    Snow ball fights, sledding, snowmen, and so much more. This book is a love letter to all the wonderful things winter sends our way! Winter is for Snow by Robert Neubecker is a back and forth, pro & con list of grumbles and loves of winter between a brother and sister. From fun...

    When I shared this with the library story time crowd I began with the page BEFORE the title page which shows a window in nine phases. I said, "Sometimes before you go to bed you might look out the window. It's pitch black outside and you see ONE snowflake (pointing to the first window)...

    I really like this simple story about a brother and sister; one who loves snow, the other who doesn't. Living in the Midwest, you would think that everyone at least tolerated snow, but instead you hear complaint after complaint about the weather that we have always had. This book, in i...

    Two child narrators (a brother and sister) go back and forth over whether winter is good or bad, in rhyming text. Neubecker shows all of the good and some bad about winter. It emphasizes mostly the positive and the same is shown through cheerful wintery illustrations as Neubecker gets ...

    Boy likes snow. Girl does not. Mentions winter holidays so best to use before the end of December. Good for pre-K and outreach. ...

    Cute winter rhyme, good read aloud. ...
