Before Morning

9780547979175.jpgLuscious verse invokes a snow day while illustrations show a pilot going to work in the wee hours, the snow clogging her commute and the flights at the airport are all cancelled. She flags down a snowplow driver, who brings her home where her husband and child are waking up. The final pages show them enjoying the snow day together.

Before Morning by Joyce Sidman and illustrated by Beth Krommes is a treat to savour again and again.
