Is it a school day? Is it pizza day? Is it a snow day? Jasmine wants it all!

Neat! Neat! Snowy feet! Snowy feet can’t be beat! Wintertime is fun!

There’s a big blizzard blowing in, but that’s not going to stop Jasmine from going to school – it’s just a little snow, and it’s pizza day, after all! But as soon as she sets out the snow starts to come down faster and faster until she finds herself frozen stiff, with just her hat poking out of a snowdrift.

Rescue comes in the form of the school custodian, who stomps out on snowshoes, yanks her out, pulls her inside and figures out how to get her thawed. But on the way to her class they notice that the school is empty – the principal has declared a snow day! Which is always great news . . . but how is Jasmine going to get her pizza?

About the story

Robert Munsch wrote this book when he visited Washington Hunt Elementary School in December, 2005, when they were in the middle of the first big snow of the year. Jasmine was in the kindergarten class there. The Lockport Hospital was right next to the school, and in the first version of the story, Jasmine went to the hospital to be thawed out. When the story was made into a book, the school caretaker took Jasmine to the school nurse’s office instead.
