Snow Sisters!

Snow Sisters! illus. by Teagan White. 32p. Knopf. Jan. 2018. Tr $17.99. ISBN 978–1101938836.
PreS-Gr 1—This wintery tale is all about how two very different sisters celebrate a snowy day. The spare text describes each sister's actions such as, "Coat. Scarf. Hat. Mittens. Boots." for the messy redhead and "Cocoa. Blankets. Books." for the more organized brunette. The book details each sibling's day, and the gouache and watercolor illustrations depict each sister's opposing behavior and how they find common ground. One sister sits in the window seat while having a sweet tea party during, "Playing. Spotting." The messy sister jumps on the couch and throws game pieces on the ground during, "Spotting. Playing." This book will be enjoyed as a one-on-one read or with a small group. The detailed illustrations elevate this winter book above most.
VERDICT A first purchase for libraries in snowy climates, or for those looking to add more books to their sibling shelves.
