Maybe that's why I could identify with the narrator of SNOW DAY. In this book, the weatherman is predicting a big storm, and the narrator imagines all of the fun things he will do with his day off from school- build a snow fort, sled on the neighbor's hill, drink hot chocolate. The next morning, though, when the family wakes up they discover that there is not a snow day, and they have to rush around crazily trying to make it to school in time. There's even one more twist, but I'll let you discover that for yourself.
A fun book to read when there's a snow day. Also a great mentor text for description or point of view!
