November 28, 2011 (Escondido) --Children and families can celebrate winter at Westfield North County’s Family Fun Days, featuring a “Snowy Days” theme on Monday, December 5, 10– 11:00 a.m., at Westfield North County, Level 1, Center Court, 272 East Via Rancho Parkway, Escondido. The event also features story time with readings of “The Snowy Day” by Ezra Jack Keats and “A Hat for Minerva Louise” by Janet Morgan Stoeke. Children will design and create their own snow globe jars to take home and enjoy a healthy snack.
“The Snowy Day” is the simple tale of a boy waking up to discover that snow has fallen during the night. Illustrations, using cut-outs, watercolors, and collage, are strikingly beautiful in their understated color and composition. The little boy celebrates the snow-draped city with a day of humble adventures--experimenting with footprints, knocking snow from a tree, creating snow angels, and trying to save a snowball for the next day.
