The Blizzard

Written by Betty Ren Wright
Illustrated by Ronald Himler
New York: Holiday House, 2003
4+ years

When danger appears, children will find support from caring people in their community.

Billy is disappointed because the heavy snow has made it impossible for his cousins and other relatives to attend his birthday party. But the snowfall becomes a blizzard that isolates Billy's rural one-room schoolhouse. Deep snow blocks travel to the building and the schoolchildren are unable to get home. Hand-in-hand, the class struggles through the blinding snow to reach Billy's nearby home. Billy's mom and dad open their home to shelter and feed the large group of children. There is a snowball fight, a sing-along, and a special birthday party for Billy that brings a wonderful conclusion to the day.
