    Summary: Peter woke up one morning to discover that it had snowed over night. So Peter put on his snowsuit and went outside to play. Peter made footprints in the snow and made a snowman. He wanted to throw snowballs with the big boys but he was too little. That didn’t bother Peter. The snow was piled high. So Peter pretended to be a mountain climber. Peter didn’t want the snowy day to end. So when it was time to go inside, Peter put a snowball in his pocket for tomorrow.
