With their little-girl owner away on winter vacation, these toy friends journey outside to experience the magic a snowy day can offer.
About Toys Meet Snow:
The lovable trio of Lumphy, StingRay, and Plastic (originally introduced in Toys Go Out) are back and making their picture-book debut in Toys Meet Snow, written and illustrated by the award-winning team of Emily Jenkins and Paul O. Zelinsky.
“What do you think snow is exactly?” asks Lumphy.
“It’s a blanket of peace over the world,” says StingRay.
“No, it’s frozen water,” says Plastic. “I read it in a book.”
When curiosity gets the best of them, Lumphy, the stuffed buffalo; StingRay, the plush stingray; and Plastic, the bouncy red ball, make their way outdoors to see what snow is really all about. Once outside, the three experience all the joys that snowy weather can offer, from making a snowman to sledding to making snow angels. Once daylight begins to fade, the toys, fresh from their adventures, return to the warmth of their home, where the beauty of the sunset and descending nightfall bring them peace.
Toys Meet Snow has everything a reader looks for in a picture book—a captivating story, characters to cherish, and charming and heartwarming illustrations. Jenkins and Zelinsky have collaborated to create an utterly unforgettable story destined to become a classic and sure to be embraced by kids, parents, and educators alike. The perfect read-aloud no matter what the weather, Toys Meet Snow is the book all readers will be clamoring for this year.
