Everything is white outside! Grandad is still snuggled up in bed and reads a book. When Sam, his grandson, runs to the door again to look out, the first child already runs through the pristine snow. Grandad takes ages and all the other children are already outside! Sam’s friends whiz past with their sleighs, skis and snow balls for the first snow ball fight. If it drags on like this, they will miss all the fun!
But Grandad only laughs and says: „Probably the whole zoo will be on its way!“ When they finally reach the park, the animals from the zoo are actually there. The monkeys build a snowman and the elephant is a great climbing frame for all the children! Maybe Grandad is right, waiting for something nice pays off. But the most important thing is, that it is going to snow again tomorrow.
This book is suitable for children between 3 and 7 years of age.
