Picture Book


Author John Rocco presents a story of New England's blizzard of 1978, based on his own childhood experience.

Why You'll Love It:
  •  Rocco's artwork is center stage here -- a double gatefold shows the extent of the detours John takes to gather grocery orders from his housebound neighbors and make his way to the store.
  • The white negative space around some of his images effectively portrays the vastness of the snowstorm in a minimalist way.
  • The kid is the hero! What a great message for our readers.
Who Should Read It:

Great for Grades K-2...and here's the book trailer.
