    One thought on “Walking in a Winter Wonderland”

    1. Before reading this book I hadn't heard Peggy Lee's version of Walking in a Winter Wonderland. The unfamiliar line "In the meadow we can build a snowman. And pretend that he's a Santa clown." just threw me. I had to listen to her version to hear if that is what she actually says. Santa clown, what is that? The picture shows a regular snowman, no Santa hat even. I much prefer the original lyrics as sung by Bing Crosby. The illustrations beautifully depict the winter season and the enjoyment that [...]

    2. This book is based on the song by Felix Bernard and Richard B Smith and is filled with vivid and vibrant artistic illustrations.

    3. Such beautiful illustrations by Tim Hopgood and a great song. However, my unbridled enthusiasm for this book screeched to a halt when I flipped the page to "We'll frolic and play the Eskimo way." Yikes, we can't be singing that at Storytime! Considering that terminology was out-of-fashion and politically incorrect when I was in elementary school (25+ years ago), it's hard to believe this still flies in a modern children's book. While I can appreciate the lyrics are verbatim from the 1960s Peggy [...]

    4. One of my favorite seasonal songs celebrating winter is featured here, accompanied by expressive collage illustrations that were created using pencil, calligraphy ink, wax crayon, and chalk pastel. The images feature a family venturing out into a winter wonderland and marveling at Nature's beauty while animals look on. By the end of the day after all that activity, including riding on a sled and building a snowman, of course, the family is exhausted. Still, they manage to savor those wonderful m [...]

    5. Song lyric picture books can be hit or miss but this one is one NOT to be missed. Brightly colored illustrations complement the lyrics to "Walking in a Winterland" while a family enjoys the winter outdoors. I loved the illustrations. The mixed media techniques that Tim Hopgood uses really make it feel like a snowy winter scene. His combination of pastel, crayon, and computer editing really makes gives the snow a flaky appearance in the sky and on the ground. Definitely a feel good book that help [...]

    6. Illustrations matched up very well to this popular song. I especially love the author's note at the end on his interpretation of the song and why he wanted to create this book. I don't think I have ever really stopped to think about what the words of the song really meant. I won't tell you here, because if you didn't read that note it's worth taking a moment to do so.

    7. Pretty illustrations to go with the classic song.I understand changing the lyrics about pretending the snowman is going to marry the singer(s), but I don't understand why the change from "circus clown" to "Santa clown." It doesn't make sense (what on earth is a Santa clown??), but also makes a Winter song into an explicitly Christmas song.

    8. I'm not the biggest fan of picture books that are song lyrics but this one is beautiful! Can't wait til Christmas.

    9. Text is changed (from what is usually heard on the radio) to be more child-friendly and not romantic. Beautiful illustrations.

    10. Bright and colorful illustrations paired with a tried and true winter song make this picture book into more of an activity! Singing with your kid is the best

    11. All 4 stars are for the illustrations which are a fantastic match for the song. I prefer the traditional lyrics with Parson Brown and Conspiring by the fire not version adapted for Peggy Lee.

    12. Beautiful illustrations bring life to the song. The kids seemed to enjoy it, and I look forward to sharing this with some senior citizens.

    13. At first it was off putting as the lyrics are a bit different from those in the original version, though they stay true to Peggy Lee's lyrics. They exchange Parson Brown for Santa Clause and there is no mention of love in this version, but the artwork in this beautiful book are wonderful. It would be great to show with the YouTube of Peggy Lee singing in the background. Great laptop read to young children as well.

    14. You can't help but sing along as you read this beautifully illustrated book based on the beloved winter classic.

    15. I only read (well, sang) this with one class visit. They weren't really about it, but I love this song. And the illustrations in this book are beautiful!

    16. You’ll sing right along as this book illustrates the classic Christmas song, “Walking in a Winter Wonderland”.

    17. Picture book version of the song, adds context to the song by putting in a family having a winter adventure.

    18. Two years after illustrating the song, What a Wonderful World, Hopgood brings us Walking in a Winter Wonderland. I am a fan of the artwork and the song. Musical notes are added into the illustrations about a family on a winter adventure. I sang this winter song as soon as I opened the book.Reviewed from a library copy.2017 storytime theme: baby storytime singable books2018 storytime theme: baby storytime

    20. A well-recognized song set to beautiful illustrations. On each page, musical notes are incorporated into the picture, allowing readers to see what music looks like. There are parts that have been updated for a modern, child audience (the Parson Brown part!)

    21. Really nice picture book that illustrates the popular Christmas Carol that was sung by Peggy Lee. and the dong by Felix Bernard and Richard B. Smith. I plan on using this for the Winter Story Walk family fun program in December. I think the kids will enjoy it.

    22. oh my goshis is my new favorite Christmas picture book! these illustrations are big, bold and beautiful. can't wait to sing my heart out at story time

    23. A lovely mixed media interpretation of the lyrics to a classic Christmas song. Great seasonal fun for PreK-2, especially for gift-giving.

    24. It was fine. Two days after I read it, I had already forgotten that I read it. But the illustrations are nice.
