If It's Snowy and You Know It, Clap Your Paws!

by Kim Norman, Liza Woodruff
If it's snowy and you know it,
roll a snowball up and throw it,
if it's snowy and you know it, clap your paws.

Now in board and perfectly abridged for the youngest readers: another irresistible winter-themed romp from Kim Norman and Liza Woodruff, the team behind the delightful Ten on the Sled! This humorous variation on the classic song “If You're Happy and You Know It” introduces a group of adorable animals playing joyfully in the snow. They ice skate on a lake, catch snowflakes on their tongues, sculpt snowcritters, and make a frosty fort. But can they go with the flow when their wild adventure drifts in a surprising direction? Young readers will laugh and sing along!
Praise for the picture book edition of If It's Snowy and You Know It Clap Your Paws!

“A wintry riff on the popular participation song, with a cast of appropriate cold-climate animals. . . . Norman's solid variations on the preschool song are completely singer-friendly, supported by Woodruff's crisply drawn, smiling animals, in watercolor, colored pencil and pastel. Consistently entertaining and engaging. All together now!” —Kirkus Reviews
“Here's a cheerful and humorous take on the old, familiar tune . . . Begging to be sung at storytime, the lyrics roll off the tongue easily. Search no longer for the book to brighten long, dreary days. Once children learn the verses, they will sing this tune all winter long. Pair with Ten on the Sled (2010), also by this talented author-illustrator team.” —Booklist
