With the huge snow storm that is affecting a large portion of the country, this is the perfect book to snuggle up and enjoy this classic read-a-loud for ages 3-5.

Peter lives in a large city, and he wakes up one morning to the ground outside his home covered in beautiful snow. He dresses in warm clothes and goes out to play. He makes tracks in the snow, and enjoys playing with a stick. He hits a limb that is heavy with snow and snow falls on his face. All children will be able to relate to the fun that Peter is having in the snow.
