The story follows Peter, a young boy who wakes up to discover that it has snowed during the night. Excited, he puts on his red snowsuit and ventures outside to explore. Along the snowy streets, Peter makes tracks, builds a snowman, and even imagines himself as a mountain climber. The magic and wonder of a snowy day unfold as we see the world through Peter’s eyes. It’s a delightful tale of childhood curiosity and joy in the simple pleasures of winter. ( )
