Product Description

Review

“The simple linocut illustrations are stunning; with white figures on a blue background, they create an idealized wintry world.”—Bloomberg.com

“The simple lines and crisp images, especially of spiky Jack Frost, pop and are a delight for the eyes. . . . This is a beautiful piece of bookmaking.”—School Library Journal

“A sparkling winter treat.”—Publishers Weekly

“The artful design is what will draw repeat viewers, young and old, who’ll be taken with the pictures’ evocative feel.”—Booklist

“As in Ghosts in the House!, the limited-palette illustrations are composed of the simplest shapes and lines, here enhanced with swirls of motion (check out Jack’s shoes), mottled-background snowfall, and a few perfectly formed snowflakes.”—The Horn Book

Wonderful Winter Story Feb. 9 2010
By J.Prather - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
It's the illustrations that shine here- the simple artwork is very engaging and perfectly complements the magical little story of Jack Frost. It's the perfect book for the end of winter when everyone needs a reminder that Spring is just around the corner. I loved this authors book Ghosts in the House and this one is just as wonderful. It's great for group sharing; kids in my groups were full of questions about Jack Frost. A solid choice for post-holiday winter story times for preschoolers.

Beautiful, Sensitive and Unique Winter Story Dec 21 2009
By Eco Mama's Guide To Living Green - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is a bittersweet touching book about a boy's encounter with Jack Frost. For me it was about living in the moment and the fleeting joys of winter and ultimately, life. The illustrations are lovely and it makes for a quick read, nice for a goodnight story. It's a sweet, sensitive tale, and I think it would make a great Holiday gift.

wonderful winter book May 2 2010
By DeniceK - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I read a positive review of this book somewhere and bought it to read to my kindergarten class. The story is very sweet - about a visit from Jack Frost. And the pictures are visually appealing: stark blue and white tipped with silver - but beautiful and lacy, too. After reading it to my class, my students asked our school librarian to get several copies for our school.

My daughter loved it Feb. 24 2013
By ShoppingMama - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It is a sweet and charming story about Winter and the fun to be had for a little boy and his imagination. My daughter absolutely LOVES this book and keeps "reading" it whenever she can. That being said, (spoiler alert) ..... I read it to her and her friend the other day and he was a bit scared- I think the picture of jack frost scared him a little bit and then when it talked about not saying anything warm to keep the spell from breaking- he got really freaked out....When I explained that nothing bad was going to happen just that spring would arrive, he calmed down and then with the last words of see you next year- he was eager to read it afterwards. My daughter was comfortable with the story from the beginning though so know the child and def. read it before reading it to your little one.

Jack Frost Feb. 10 2013
By Chickenlittle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Here Comes Jack Frost is an amazing book! The illustrations are captivating and the story is fabulous. This is a great book for adults and children. The little boy starts out being quite unhappy about winter, but strange patterns appear on his window and then the magic begins. Jack, the boy, and, his dog have adventurous fun all winter long until the arrival of spring. This book should be in every child's home library.
