Reviews

"Utterly enchanting; a perfect bedtime read." --School Library Journal, Starred

"The wonderfully idiosyncratic trio works brilliantly together, playing with equally exciting imaginary and realistic hypotheses about snow, their unique personalities and intellectual strengths jiving all the while... Snow never left you feeling warmer inside." --Kirkus Reviews, Starred

"This wonderfully understated story enchants from the first page." --Publishers Weekly, Starred

"There is perennial pleasure to be had in stories of toys come to life, and fans of Jenkins' Toys Go Out (BCCB 11/06), its sequel, Toy Dance Party, and its prequel, Toys Come Home, already know and love stuffed buffalo Lumphy, plush StingRay, and Plastic (a rubber ball)." --The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, Starred
