Before Morning by Joyce Sidman

Before Morning by Joyce Sidman; illustrated by Beth Krommes. 2016. Scratchboard and watercolors.

Brief summary: A young girl makes a wish hoping that snow comes that night to slow down the fast paced city.  Her mother returns home from work after arriving to the airport to see the snow covered runway. The next morning her family enjoys the snow day by going out sledding and returning home to eat bakery delights while their wet clothes dry from the snow.

Comments: The illustrations make the  short poem come alive in this snow day wish story.
