Cynthia Cotten, Vermont childrens author, Snow Ponies

Cover art copyright
Jason Cockcroft 2001

A picture book illustrated by Jason Cockcroft, published by Henry Holt & Company, 2001.

  • A Children's Book Council "Children's Choices" selection.

On a cold gray day, Old Man Winter leads his snow ponies outside. "Are you ready?" he asks them. They toss their heads. Yes! The ponies gallop across the landscape, bringing winter to the forest and field. Everything they touch turns white with snow.


From the Reviewers

Kirkus Reviews

...a beautiful as well as a magical read.

School Library Journal

The brief text is rich with descriptive phrases. . . This book could be used as a starting point for sparking students' imagination about snow, and the illustrations will definitely attract young equine fans.
