Summary:  During a snowstorm in the city, a boy and his dog are the only ones who think the snowfal will amount to anything. As the snow overtakes the city, the charming watercolor and pen-and-ink illustrations take over the book.

Classroom Ideas: Younger grade teachers could incorporate this book into a weather unit. Art teachers could talk about Shulevitz's use of watercolors or do some sort of snowflake activity.
