Preschool and Kindergarten ....reflect on the snow through BLIZZARD by John Rocco

On Monday, February 6, 1978, New England experienced one of the biggest snowstorms in its history. It snowed for two days, and by the time is stopped, parts of Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and Connecticut were buried under forty inches of snow. Where I grew up in Rhode Island, it took over a week for snowplows to get to our street.
The book, BLIZZARD, is based on my experience as a ten-year-old boy in that blizzard and how I got to the store, over a mile from my house, with tennis rackets tied to my feet.
