My 6yo was laughing out loud at this book, especially the toothbrush snow. I think he really wanted to see sock snow - but alas, it was not to be. (Oops, is that a spoiler? Sorry.) We talked about the drawing style (it seems to get progressively sophisticated through the book), and the interactions between the animals, and what was happening on the wordless pages. I had read it once before we read it together, and I must say that his delight improved my outlook on the book. All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed it, and I'm glad to have experienced it with the aid of younger eyes.
