We love all the Jillian Jiggs books, and this one is no exception. They have a wonderful meter such that the words just roll off your tongue when you're reading them. The rhymes feel natural not forced. And Jillian is a great character to whom kids can relate because she is creative, spunky and faces everyday problems. In this story, she slowly loses her outerwear (scarf then mittens then hat) while playing outside in the snow.
