FORMATS
When an icy crust forms over the snow, Lizzie and her friends have one thing on their minds: sledding. Lizzie persuades her Grandpa Bud to lend her the homemade sled he used as a child (“We promised not to break ourselves”), and the children make the difficult climb up a slick, crusty hill of ice. Rule and Thermes gracefully depict the exhilaration of snowy play and the wisp of anxiety that comes as they gaze down the intimidating slope. There’s a nostalgic air to the book; Lizzie’s story reads like one that she’ll pass down to later generations, just like Grandpa Bud’s stories and his sled. Ages 4–8. (Nov.)
