Book Review: 'Here Comes Jack Frost'

Here Comes Jack Frost welcomes winter with a seasonal, totally holiday-free celebration of snow, frost, and all things cold and glittery. The charming cover and pictures make it hard to resist even if the story doesn’t break new ground: A boy strikes up a friendship with Jack Frost and they romp and play through the season on sleds, skates and skis until spring inevitably arrives.

I loved author Kazuno Kohara’s first book, Ghosts in the House, and this one shares the same wonderful, three-toned lino-cut illustrations and perfectly integrated design. It’s a beautiful book to look at and pleasant to read aloud, too, although a few pages reach a little too hard to flow well. If you’re visiting a house with kids this season, take Here Comes Jack Frost as a gift that will be enjoyed for months and years to come.
