Blizzard by John Rocco
For those of us living in Florida, a winter wonderland of snow sounds very appealing, but John Rocco gives us a different perspective in his beautifully illustrated book, Blizzard.The first few days of snowfall don’t cause alarm, but after a week of heavy snow, one young boy decides he must take action to save his neighbors. Rocco’s story is delightful and sweet. The book is based on his own childhood memory of the Blizzard of ’78 in New England.
I recommend Blizzard for those who’ve experienced forty-inch snows as well as those of us who miss the winter weather.
