"It's snowing," said boy with dog.

"It's only a snowflake," said grandfather with beard.

No one thinks one or two snowflakes will amount to anything. Not the man with the hat or the lady with the umbrella. Not even the television or the radio forecasters. But one boy and his dog have faith that the snow will

Snow is a Caldecott Honor book. A little boy counts the snowflakes as they fall. He is the only one that believes it will snow. Will the Snow amount to anything? His grandfather with the beard says, ¿It¿s only a snowflake.¿ The author Uri Schulevitz also illustrated the book. The book is very interesting and would be suitable for grades P-4. The book keeps the reader in suspense wondering if it will come a big snow or not one at all. This book would be a Realistic book because I remember sitting in the window looking out and wishing for snow. This book teaches about being able to stick to what you believe even though no one else believes it. Uri Shulevitz is from Poland. When he was four his family left Poland because of the war. They eventually settled in Paris and then moved to Israel. He then moved to New York and began illustrating books for Hebrew children. Shulevitz, Uri. Snow. New York: Farrar, Straus, Giroux, 1998.

One of my favorite books! Great for children as young as preschool. The story follows the snowflakes as the cover an entire village.

This book was a Caldecott Honor book and is appropriate for children ages 3-7. This book is a realistic book. It is about a little boy who counts the snowflakes as they are falling. He is the only person who believes it will snow. He wonders if the snow will amount to anything. His grandfather says, ¿It¿s only a snowflake¿. This book would keep a child¿s attention. My preschooler loved the book. I believe every child loves to see and read about snow. The author is Uri Shulevitz, who is from Poland. When he was young he and his family had to leave Poland because of the war. During his childhood he also lived for a short time in Paris and then they moved to Israel. He later moved to New York where he began illustrating books. Shulevitz, Uri. Snow. New York: Farrar, Straus, Giroux, 1998.

One gray day, a little boy and his dog were looking out the window and saw one single snow flake. No one thought that it would snow execpt that little boy and his dog. ''It's snowing' said the boy with dog. 'It's only a snowflake' said the grandfather with beard.' In a town of gray will it ever snow? Will it listen to the radio or the television? Will the town ever be white with snow? I guess you will have to read to find out. Uri Shulevitz's 'Snow' is a caldecott award winner for 1998. This book is an enjoyable read for the age level 3-7. It has an important message that no matter what you think, anything can come true, only if you belive it yourself. Shulevitz, Uri. SNOW. New York:Farrar Straus Giroux, 1998.

Snow is a simple picture book with carefully composed illustrations and minimal text. This Caldecott Honor book is written and illustrated by Uri Shulevitz. Shulevitz has illustrated more than twenty award-winning books. He has also taught drawing to college students. Snowflakes begin to fall, but no one pays attention except for a small boy and his dog. First, the little boy encounters his grandfather¿s response. ¿It¿s only a snowflake¿, said his grandfather. More and more snowflakes fall, but no one believes it will amount to anything except for the boy. ¿No snow¿, said the television. This doesn¿t change the boy¿s opinion. After a while, snowflakes continuously fall, and the rooftops are covered. Shulevitz, Uri. Snow. Sunburst, 1998. Reading level: Ages 3-7

No one believed that snow would actually come this small town, but the boy knew. The radio and TV said there would be no snow and so did other members of the town. The boy knew that snow would come soon. Snow was more than just a cold, white blanket. The boy knew snow had talents such as spinning, twirling, and dancing. Throughout the story the boy uses his imagination and wishes for the town to soon see a white mask of snow. Uri Shulevitz does a wonderful job of showing just that with his short,playful lines and colorful and lifelike illustrations. Shulevitz makes any little boy believe that snow will come to any town.......

First one snowflake, then two. When the little boy in this story asks others if it will snow they all say, ¿No.¿ Nobody thinks the snow will amount to anything. ¿It¿s snowing¿ yells the little boy. Suddenly the city is covered in snow and the city is transformed.

A few snowflakes don¿t mean anything, do they? When a few snowflakes fall, nobody believes that anything will come of it, ¿`It¿s only a snowflake,¿ said grandfather with beard.¿ However, a boy and his dog knew otherwise, for ¿all snowflakes know is snow, snow, and snow.¿ The question was, how long would it keep snowing? Snow is a great story for children about what a winter snowfall is like. When the snowflakes begin to fall, one little boy believes that it is snowing, and even though everyone else thinks it is nothing, he still believes otherwise. This book teaches children that if you believe something is true, you shouldn¿t listen to others who tell you that you are wrong, for if you believe, it just might come true. Uri Shulevitz was born in the mid 1930¿s in Poland just before World War II. The war forced his family out of Poland and they settled in Paris, and then in Israel. In Israel, he studied at the Teacher¿s College and the Art Institute in Tel Aviv. Then, in 1959, he moved to New York City and he continued his education at the Brooklyn Museum Art School. He also began to illustrate Hebrew books for children. Eventually, an editor talked him into writing and illustrating his own books, and in 1963, his first book, The Moon in My Room was published. Since then, he has illustrated dozens of award-winning books and taught drawing and design to college students, inspiring a new generation of artists and illustrators. Shulevitz, Uri. Snow. New York: Farrar Straus Giroux, 1998. RL: Ages 3-7, Grades PreK-2
