The Snow Day - Komako Sakai

Upon the first reading of this book, I absolutely loved the illustrations. They capture the essence of being trapped in a snow storm - the dark, dreary snow that seems like it will never end. But the young rabbit wants to play. He is disappointed that daddy's flight is delayed. But when the snow finally stops falling, mommy and bunny have great fun outside. Great illustrations and an excellent story. Even in translations this is a great book for young readers.
