The Jacket I Wear in the Snow by Shirley Neitzel, Nancy Winslow Parker (Illustrator),Nancy Einslow Parker (Illustrator)

Synopsis

The Jacket I Wear in the Snow

Rhyme follows rhyme as layer after layer of winter clothing (“bunchy and hot, wrinkled a lot, stiff in the knee, and too big for me!”) is first put on and then taken off to the relief of the child bundled inside. Clever rebuses and jaunty illustrations make The Jacket I Wear in the Snow especially fun for pre-readers and new readers.

A young girl names all the clothes that she must wear to play in the snow.
