I work in an elementary school and teachers speak a special language “picture book.” Anyone who has spent some time in a school or with little kids knows that The Snowy Day is an excellent picture book about what else but a snowy day. We read this book to the kids before the first big snow storm each year (thanks to Mother Nature we have not yet had the opportunity to share this literary gem). We teachers firmly believe just as Apple suggests for everything “there is an app for that” for any given situation, mood or lesson “there is a picture book for that.” We express our feelings with I Love you This Much, celebrate seasons with The Snowy Day, and refer to all of our bad days as Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Days!
I woke up giddy this morning planning on spending my Snowy Day doing laundry, cleaning and my favorite snow day activity baking. Despite my excitement, the white stuff failed to fall from the sky. I decided to bake anyway.
