About Illustrator Emilie Boon, Author Jamie A. Swenson, & the Book!

In this raucous, rhyming plea for snow, a group of youngsters imagines the cold-weather delights they'll enjoy once winter arrives. From sledding down hills and skating on ponds to building snow forts and snowmen to sharing crackling fires and mugs of hot cocoa, they want snow and plenty of it. The snow can't arrive soon enough. But once the flakes start to fall, are the youngsters in for more than they bargained for? Readers young and old will enjoy this celebration of winter's snowy activities, recalling past pleasures and imagining future ones.

Emilie Boon is the illustrator or author-illustrator of more than twenty books for children, including We Want Snow: A Wintry Chant, by Jamie A. Swenson, as well as Ella & Monkey at Sea, which was inspired by Emilie's own experience sailing to America when she was young. Born in the Netherlands, Emilie spent her childhood daydreaming in California and Mexico and now lives in the Boston area.

Author Jamie A. Swenson absolutely LOVES sharing books, songs, and rhymes with families at the library where she has worked for over twenty years. We Want Snow: A Wintry Chant is her eighth book for children; she cannot wait to share some wintry fun with you!
