Jyra’s parents have a surprise for her – a trip to the snow! But Jyra’s forgotten to tell them about a very special school excursion and she can’t find the words to tell her parents or the note that explains it all. What is she going to do?
Follow Jyra as she tries to figure a way out of her dilemma.


We received this book to give an honest review.

For K and I this was an okay book, I don't think K enjoyed it as much as I thought he would.
Jyra's parents are wanting to surprise her with a cool trip but when they wanting to go is during the week and Jyra wanted to do something with her school. At first of course Jyra gets upset and then realizes she should have given her parents the permission slip to attend the school trip.  Will she get to go or is it too late? I think this was a good message for kids to understand that if you want to do something really cool or special then make sure you give your parents the note you are suppose to.
I didn't understand the way the author kept saying a trip to the snow....to me that just sounds off, but maybe people do talk like that. K asked me what they meant and I explained that it probably meant to go skiing as that is what the picture looked like. K's favorite part in the book was going to the museum and he has said he wants to go to the museum one day.
Overall a good book and good illustrations.
