What did you like about the book? Poetic text is paired with beautiful photographs to depict a snowy day in the woods. “A freeze. A breeze. A cloud. It snows. Snowflakes land on a squirrel’s nose.” Photographs include wildlife and plant life as well as ice crystals. The book includes “Secret f Snow” which gives scientific information. A bibliography is also included. A beautiful up-close look at winter.
Anything you didn’t like about it? No
To whom would you recommend this book? This is a wonderful book to share on a winter’s day. Readers who enjoyed A Stranger in the Woods by Carl R. Sams II will love this one.
Who should buy this book? Public libraries and elementary school libraries
Where would you shelve it? Picture Books
Should we (librarians/readers) put this at the top of our “to read” piles? No
