  School Library Journal Review

K-Gr 3-Fifth in a series of beginning chapter books about a boy and his sister, this title will be an excellent addition to collections needing materials for transitional readers. In the first chapter, Lionel thinks about the pleasures of winter while the rest of his family prepares for it. Left alone in the kitchen, he laments the fact that sometimes the season gets lonely. In another episode, he pretends to be a great northern explorer, braving winds and cold in unknown territory. In the third chapter, the siblings discuss New Year's resolutions and make pointed suggestions to each other about which ones to make. In the final chapter, Lionel and a friend make snowmen. Natti's softly expressive watercolors combine just the right blend of realism and humorous whimsy. Written in clear, concise language, these tales of a two-parent, suburban family will help readers bridge the gap from picture books to lengthier chapter books.-Sharron McElmeel, Cedar Rapids Community Schools, IA (c) Copyright 2010.
