If It’s Snowy and You Know It, Clap Your Paws!

Kim Norman, illus. by Liza Woodruff. Sterling, $14.95 (24p) ISBN 978-1-4549-0384-0
The team behind Ten on the Sled presents a rollicking twist on “If You’re Happy and You Know It” starring a bevy of winter-loving animals. Norman offers 11 alliterative verses whose spot-on rhythms and rhymes make singalouds a given: “If your fur is full of flurries, taste a flake./ Skate around or make some angels on a lake.” The verses build a narrative that involves an igloo that nearly drifts to sea, an outdoor picnic, and cozy indoor reading and painting. Woodruff includes lightly comedic moments throughout her mixed-media illustrations (a rabbit zips into its footie pajamas in preparation for a slumber party), which have a warmth that belies the midwinter setting. Ages 3–up. (Oct.)
