Lucy is a puppy who loves to play outside. Then one day she discovers that her yard is covered with "white stuff." The little dog soon discovers that she likes the feel of the snow beneath her feet and so does Timmy, her best dog friend. Soon the two little dogs are having a wonderful time playing in the wintery outdoors.

This very minimal little board book beautifully captures the excitement of a first encounter with snow. The author creates a world full of youthful joys, funny puppies, and deliciously bright clear color.
