Snow Globe Wishes
A blizzard comes and causes traffic to be congested, knocks out the power, and rages through the night. One family embraces the quiet time together and celebrates with a candlelight picnic on the floor by the fireplace and sleeping in a blanket fort. A little girl makes a wish on her snow globe. The sun dawns on a clear day and a world covered in fresh snow. The family steps outside to play in the pure white snow and so do neighbors and their families. Children play, dogs romp, adults shovel and chat, and in the snowy world, someone reaches out and holds another’s hand. And then another does and on and on. Peace on earth, all is right with the world.
Author Erin Dealey has written a sweet, lyrical story that will give joy to youngsters and the adults who read to them. The text has a perfect meter and rhyme and is thoroughly enchanting. The soft, quiet illustrations by artist Claire Shorrock are the perfect complement to Dealey’s lovely story. This will become a favorite and will make those who live where there is no snow want to move to wintry places.
After editing at City Book Review for a few years, I took up the duties of editorial assistant, which include assigning books for review, posting reviews to our various sites, and nagging reviewers for things. In my non-nagging time, I’m a gamer, artist, writer, and notorious black thumb/bane of plants. My answer to every book-related question: read Octavia Butler.
