With the wild weather we’ve had around the country lately, I couldn’t resist featuring this book. There’s nothing more magical than seeing a snowplow come down the street when you’re all snowed in. (Spoiler alert: School gets cancelled in the story, so your students are sure to love it!)
To win the book, submit a comment to this blog to let us know your favorite thing about a snow day. (Update: Congratulations to Carol, our lucky winner!) Send your comment by Wednesday, February 20; one lucky teacher will be randomly selected to win.
