Another Book for a Snowy Day

Before Morning by Joyce Sidman, illustrated by Beth Krommes

I am a word person. So it is the spare but emotionally packed poetry of this new children’s book that moves me most. It begins: “In the deep woolen dark, as we slumber unknowing, let the sky fill with flurry and flight.”

And yet, the story’s power depends, in part, on the pictures. Together, words and images telling the tale of a little girl who calls up a snowstorm big enough to cancel a flight that would take her airline pilot mom away for the night.

Pegged for ages 4-7.

Curl up with your child and read!
