It's Sam's first snowstorm, and Stella, who's older, is showing him the ropes. As she offers creative answers to Sam's numerous questions, her wild red-orange hair stands out cheerfully against the winter landscape. Sam remains cautious, but finally, in a satisfying ending, he enters into Stella's imaginings about snow angels. In both text and illustrations, Gay endows her characters with distinctive personalities. Copyright 2001 Horn Book Guide Reviews

Reviewed by School Library Journal Reviews (SLJ Reviews 2000 October)
PreS-K-Stella and her little brother, Sam, first introduced in Stella, Star of the Sea (Groundwood, 1999) return in a new adventure as Sam experiences his first snowstorm. As in the prior book, he is timid and plies his exuberant sister with myriad questions about what snowmen eat, how many snowflakes are in a snowball, etc. Stella's answers are an amusing combination of fact and fancy as she gently urges her brother to shed his fears and share her delight in the day. This is a charming story of successful sibling mentoring, simply but effectively told. Gay's line-and-watercolor illustrations flow across double-page spreads and complement both the humor and the message of the tale.-Grace Oliff, Ann Blanche Smith School, Hillsdale, NJ Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
