Great book about winter Feb 9, 2007
I had previously purchased It's Fall by the same author and since we just loved reading it every fall I was so excited to see that the author had written the same type of a book for winter, summer & spring. This book is not only cute, educational and great to read, it also has the cutest illustrations I've ever seen. I don't know who loves it more- me or my two kids. I highly recommend it for a great fun winter read!
A girl and her dog discover the wonders of the snowy season Nov 15, 2002
It's Winter by Jimmy Pickering is a season-themed picture book with a distinctively zany art style that effectively uses simple, stylized colors and shapes. A girl and her dog discover the wonders of the snowy season in this joyful, rhyming book for beginning readers. It's Winter is an ideal and entertaining addition to family, school, and community library picture book collections for young readers.

Winter Antics Abound! Aug 8, 2002
It's a wonderful treat to discover a children's book that has that magical combination of richly whimsical illustration with a fun-to-read story. A book that is easily a classic right off the press.
Jimmy Pickering's newest book "It's Winter" is one in a series of four children's books about the seasons. Accompanying it is "It's Fall" and one can assume that the other two seasons can't be far behind.
A delightful collection will be on your shelves once all four seasons are out, because Sally and Sam, the lead characters in the series of books, take delight in what's special about each of the seasons. Sally, an adorable little girl, and her loyal dog Sam and too adorable not to love. They take a "best of winter" journey through the season, making snow angels, drinking hot cocoa and hanging holiday lights.
Little children will love reliving what's great about the season while grown-ups will enjoy Pickering's whimsical illustration style, so textured and stylized the art begs to be enjoyed again and again.
When you're finished with"It's Winter" and the accompanying "It's Fall" and you're waiting for the other two seasons to be published, check out Pickering's "Somethin' Pumpkin," another whimsical, funnily-creepy book about Halloween. Pickering is a master of creating unique worlds and once you've fallen in love with one of his books, you simply can't wait for the next. Jimmy is one of those rare creators who has the genius of making things original and unique -- and what a treat that is!
