Downhill! Peppa Pig and the Day at Snowy Mountain
PEPPA AND GEORGE WAKE ONE DAY.
"WE'LL GO UP SNOWY MOUNTAIN," SAID MUMMY PIG.
Mummy sees that the kids bundle up, and Daddy Pig loads up and warms up the car. They're all set, right?
But when they get to Snowy Mountain, they realize they are missing something important.
"WE DON'T HAVE A SLED!
Daddy Pig makes a noble gesture: he lies down headfirst and invites Peppa and George to climb on his back. He kicks off and they begin to slide down the mountain. Peppa and George whoop with joy as they speed past the other little sledders. Daddy Pig winds up with a snoot full of snow, but it's worth it.
Now it's time for some skiing. But first they have to take the ski lift UP the hill. From their chairs they marvel at the view. But Daddy Pig gets a little too enthusiastic about ogling the landscape and falls out of his chair and... splat!
"HE'S A WALKING SNOW DADDY!" GEORGE AND PEPPA SHOUT."
But Daddy Pig is a good sport, and after he shakes off his snowman disguise, the family take a few skiing lessons from Madame Gazelle, who leads them to the beginner's slope for their first run. Mummy Pig says she remembers how to ski, and pushes off for a run all the way down the mountain. There's just one problem!
"SHE FORGETS HOW TO STOP!"
It's Mummy Pig's turn to wind up with her face in the snow, in Peppa Pig and the Day at Snowy Mountain (Candlewick Press, 2014). The popular Peppa Pig television series shows the various snow sports that winter offers, including a spot of ice skating as well. Preschoolers get a taste of winter sports, learn a little about planning ahead, and generally enjoy a chilly but silly day of family fun in the snow.
Pair this wintry one with Peppa Pig: Peppa's Christmas Wish, Peppa Pig and the Lost Christmas List,or Peppa's Christmas. (Peppa Pig), for a seasonal storytime for Peppa fans.
