This book just made me so happy. It made me want hot chocolate, a snow day, and a sister, maybe in that order. It's just so sweet and lovely and nostalgic. I also really like how the sisters are uniquely drawn individuals and not just little copies of each other. Both the text and the illustratio...

This book opens with a simple reaction by two sisters: Snow! and Snow. From then on, words fall gently like snowflakes after the storm. The sparse text has a lovely mirror structure that creates great discussion points: How does one sister use blankets? How does the other? What are their strengths...

Snow Sisters brought back fond memories of snowy days with my own sisters. The beautifully crafted, detailed illustrations paired with the poetic sparse text flow seamlessly as the story unfolds. I enjoyed how the words repeat, but illustrations show the differences in the sister’s personalities...

Two sisters approach a snowy day in different ways - as shown through the sweet, richly detailed illustrations from Teagan White and the clever text by Kerri Kokias. This adorable story is a perfect mirror - the story reads the same back to front (except for one line at the end), which is not onl...

This charmingly illustrated book is deceptively simple. Spare in text, it explores the themes of sibling differences and winter. The book shows how two sisters choose to experience a snowy day in their own individual ways before coming together in the end. We get a hint of their difference on the...

We loved the illustrations in this sweet book about two very different sisters on a Snowy Day. It’s a very quick read with very little text, perfect for young toddlers. I read it to young elementary school kids. It also works for short story times. It can be used to discuss the winter season and s...

We loved following these two sisters on their snowy day adventures! My son noticed the way the second half of the text mirrors the first, but in reverse order, and he thought the illustrations (especially the animals, real and plush) were especially cute. I really liked the way the two sisters we...

Okay. I get what the author and illustrator are going for here. Same words, two different interpretations for two different girls. That makes sense. However: I wish the same words had been used for opposite activities (that would have packed more of a punch) and the girls' eyes are waaaay too fre...

SNOW SISTERS is such a clever story! It tells the tale of two very different sisters and their different ideas for how to spend a snowy day. In the end, of course, the two come together in a sweet and satisfying way. Kokias's text is lovely, and White's illustrations are pretty enough that I'd lo...

My daughters and I really enjoyed this book. It was fun to point out how the same words appeared on different pages but with completely different meanings (depending on which sister was leading the page). The structure of the story was fun and unique. The illustrations are cute with such attentio...
