Snowy Sunday

Phyllis Root, illus. by Helen Craig. Candlewick, $14.99 (24p) ISBN 978-0-7636-3627-2

In the final book in the series that began with One Windy Wednesday, Bonnie Bumble is concerned that her farm animals may be cold outside. Rather than let the animals indoors, her solution is to knit them cold-weather gear: “Horn-warmers. Beak-warmers. Tail-warmers. Hats all around.” Cozied up in their colorful knit outfits, the animals look entirely ridiculous, and Root and Craig take the conceit even further: when the sun comes by “to see what was up,” Bonnie makes him a hat, too, and “whenever a snowflake floated by, Bonnie knitted it a hat of its own.” A quirky cap, no pun intended, to a gently goofy series. Ages 2–5. (Oct.)
