Winter's First Snowflake

Summary:

Winter is here and it's time for snow. A young snowflake wonders out loud about the journey to earth.


Reader Enjoyment Factors:

The story is simple, allowing curiosity to move with each page, as well as chances to invite kids to add their own feelings and create an ending all their own.

Content Awareness Factors:

None, really.


Little Kid Reaction

We couldn't turn the pages fast enough. When we asked our preschooler what s/he liked best, the answer was "it's purple."

Parent Reaction

The illustrations are just beautiful; soft colors help create the quiet hush we always sense with the first snow of the year.

Type of Book:
This is a seasonal picture book.
Educational Themes:

The theme is seasonal: what happens in winter. You can use the story as a prelude to going out in the snow (or enjoying cocoa AFTER the snow), or as an introduction to poetry or creative writing.
