Snowy has to become quite creative to get a little time to himself to make his present for his mother. As she fishes and prepares their meals, Snowy goes off “to play” and to retrieve a “dropped toy.” But, at last his masterpiece is complete and he can finally show is mother how he feels about her and how much he loves her.

This heartwarming oversized picture book is sure to give little children and mothers many wonderful bedtime story hours. Full page illustrations and textured surfaces will encourage young readers to linger over the pages to look at Snow, his mother, and their lovely white world.
