Snow Day! by Lester L. Laminack (2010)
When the television weatherman predicts a big snowfall, the narrator gleefully imagines the fun-filled possibilities of an unscheduled holiday from school. Piling under warm blankets. Sipping hot chocolate in snowman mugs. Building a snow fort. Sledding in the neighbor s field. In scene after snowy scene, from sunrise to sundown, a pair of siblings, with their father in tow, show how they would make the most of their day off. ut when the family wakes up the next morning, they are in for a disappointment. No snow! As the family members pile into the car so they won t be late for school, an unexpected twist reveals who wanted the snow day most of all.
