While "helping" his mother with holiday housecleaning, an antsy young onlooker keeps a watchful eye on the progress of a winter storm. He's hoping for a big snow. A really big snow. Inside, he is underfoot, turning sheet changing and tub scrubbing into imaginary whiteouts. Outside, flakes are flying. But the clouds seem slow in delivering a serious snowfall. Then comes a dreamy naptime adventure, marking just the beginning of high hopes coming true.

An irresistible seasonal story, Big Snow was inspired by the author's own boyhood memories and by his two energetic nephews, both of whom have trouble waiting for drifts to form.
