Big Snow by Jonathan Bean
David is anxiously awaiting the arrival of the first “big snow” of winter. Although his mother enlists him to help out with some chores, his curiosity repeatedly causes him to go check on the weather. Wonderful illustrations, with lots of lovely little details. This book will make your child eagerly anticipate the first snow of winter too.

*I recently discovered Jonathan Bean, and love everything I have seen so far. The stories and illustrations are nostalgic and timeless, and these are the two favourite books in the house currently.
