In First Snow by Peter McCarty, we meet a cautious little dog named Pedro. His cousins are so excited that during Pedro’s first visit it has snowed all night long! Pedro isn’t very excited. In fact, he’s never seen snow and “It looks cold. It tastes cold. It is cold.” are his only responses when he’s asked to get dressed to play in the snow, to taste a falling snowflake, or to make a snow angel. When it comes time to go for a sled ride, Pedro is reluctant, but after a rip-roaring ride down the hill, he finds that he loves snow! Pedro, his cousins, and all of the neighborhood kids spend the rest of the afternoon enjoying a snowball fight… and Pedro did not feel cold at all! This story is full of firsts and giving the unknown a try. It’s great for those who need gentle urges to try new things. The illustrations are delightfully soft and engaging.
