Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Eileen Hanning
This lovely little concept book combines soft, pastel illustrations and simple rhyming text to introduce young readers to snow. A child and a dog romp in the snow together, admiring the snowflakes and counting them. At the beginning, the design and text focus the reader on two-inch by two-inch square illustrations for each line of verse: "One little snowflake/falls on my nose./It makes me shiver from my head to my toes." With each additional snowflake the illustrations get bigger, broadening the reader's perspective, until you reach a double-page spread with the text: "Snow on the ground/snow on me." It's as if a camera starts in close-up and then pulls back to reveal the millions of snowflakes blanketing a child's world. Millions of Snowflakes is graceful and concise. It depicts snow the way a child can relate to it: on her nose, on her hair, on the house, everywhere!
School Library Journal
PreS-A short rhyming text captures a little girl's delight as she romps with her dog in a wintry landscape. The heavily bundled youngster counts, touches, and tastes the snowflakes as they fall around her. Linda Brennan's Flannel Kisses and Lezlie Evans's Snow Dance 1997, both Houghton both welcome winter in rhyme; their longer texts and larger formats lend themselves better to group sharing than Millions of Snowflakes. However, Siddals's book is perfect for small hands, and Sayles's evocative illustrations in pastels create winter surroundings made for playful exploration.-Kathy Piehl, Mankato State University, MN
Kirkus Reviews
Siddals (Tell Me a Season, 1997) again looks to nature for inspiration in her tale of seasonal delight. This simple counting story celebrates a child's wonderment at the marvel of a snowfall. "Two little snowflakes get in my eyes./Blink! Blink! What a surprise!" Beginning with one lone flake falling on a child's nose, the gentle verse explores the various destinations of one, two, and more snowflakes, from nose to tongue, chin, and hand. "Millions of snowflakes in my hair./Snowflakes falling everywhere!" Moving from the first depiction of a solitary snowflake and gradually enlarging the focus to encompass the final full-page blizzard, Sayles's pastel illustrations deftly capture the essence of a child's pleasure in snow. Using delicate hues and softly drawn images, she recreates the quietude of a world blanketed in white. A sparkling salute to the frosty season. (Picture book. 2-6)
