This is a wordless picture book except for the few onomatopoeic sounds. Full page spreads and panels show the passage of time and what happens when a child risks everything to help a different kind of child. A great story to teach the importance of helping others in need. ( )

A Wolf in the Snow tells the story through illustrations and onomatopoeia. There are no words written in the picture book to tell the story. This would be a great book to use with students when learning about inference. Because there are no words, the students are having to use clues from the illustrations to know what is happening within the story. ( )

Wolf in the Snow is a nearly wordless picture book that relies on its Caldecott Award-winning visuals to communicate the story from beginning to end. The story shows a little girl lost in the middle of a snowstorm desperately trying to find her way back home, only to find a wolf cub separated from its pack. The visuals convey the overbearing sense of isolation and fear felt by the little girl as while keeping the focus centered on the child. ( )

How can a book with no text still be so moving?

Vivid illustrations tell the story of a child walking home in the snow who discovers a lost wolf pup. The child manages to trudge through and bring the pup to his mama wolf, only to get lost as night falls on the way home. The child (gender indistinct, but let's call her a she) cowers in the snow against the dark night...and the wolf pack keeps her safe and alerts her family to where she is.

The illustrations are amazing, fully capturing the wildness of the night and the chilly frigid snow. I'm so impressed with this one - and all with hardly any words!

Wolf in the Snow is a wonderful, mostly wordless picture book about a little girl who gets caught in a snowstorm on her way home from school. She finds a lost wolf pup in the snow and follows the wolf family's howls in order to return the young pup. After returning the pup however, she finds herself lost in the snowstorm, much like the wolf pup had been. Her parents and family dog are searching for her, but it turns out they may need a little help from her newfound wolf friends in order to find her and return her safely home. This sweet, poignant story of an unlikely friendship shows how one good deed can lead to another. The illustrations are lovely and do a fantastic job of conveying the emotions of the little girl and plunging the reader into the story without the use of any words except a few sound words. ( )
