Llustrations the book opens with a boy's excitement upon seeing the first snowflake fall outside his classroom window It ends with the neighborhood's immense relief upon seeing the first snowp. Now perhaps I am truly and simply just in a bit of a foul or curmudgeonly mood this morning but be that as it may and although I can and do definitely appreciate the general premiss and storyline of John Rocco's Blizzard especially since it is supposedly also based on his own childhood experiences during the so called Blizzard of 1978 I have actually not really all that much enjoyed either his narrative or accompanying illustrations For one and I do well realise that I am than likely being much too nit picking and perhaps even just a trifle anally retentive here the entire scenario of a true and possible threat from starvation feels in my opinion rather overly exaggerated in Blizzard since fortunately the neighbourhood obviously never appears to have lost hydroelectric power has had no water pipes freeze and break and also still seems to have heat for their houses And really one can easily survive with little to no food for considerably longer than with no water and while I do appreciate how the little boy takes his sled and makes his way to the corner store in order to purchase necessary supplies for both his family and his neighbours I do think that the entire potential danger danger danger mantra is than a bit over done not to mention that I also find it uite strange if not problematic that the little boy's family does not phone the local corner store before he sets out on his trek to make sure that the store in uestion is actually even open for business and has the reuired groceries etc available And for two while John Rocco's pictorial images of snow and ice I have indeed found visually appealing enough his illustrations of human figures are or at least feel a bit too cartoon like and flatly unemotional to and for my personal aesthetic tastes with the end result that I just have not found the combination of text and images as featured and presented in Blizzard all that pleasurable and therefore also not all that readable and memorable either a sweet and to a point even engaging little tale with certainly some good and important messages regarding helpfulness resourcefulness and being considerate to one's neighbours in times of weather related or in fact any types of stress and difficulty but from a personal reading as well as viewing pleasure point of departure I simply have not found Blizzard interesting believable and evocative enough to consider than two stars a high two and a half star rating for sure but not yet in any manner enough for three stars

Blizzard by John Rocco is based on the Blizzard of ’78 but when I spotted this cover from across the room my first thought was—“Hey They made a book about my winter already” DNew England was hit with snow upon snow upon snow this winter but it still can’t compete with the events of 1978 This is John Rocco’s story as a 10 year old boy living and surviving the Blizzard of '78A warm story for a cold time Sharing teamwork and community shine in this book I adored itThe fold out map of the neighborhood was my nephew’s favorite part He traced the route and footsteps all around and back again A sweet read that captures a storm in pictures and words and hot cocoa
