Children's LiteratureIllustrated by John Wallace, Snow is a "Level One, Ready-to-Read" book. The stage is set; winter is cold, trees have lost their leaves and the grass is brown. The sky is full of gray clouds. Ice crystals cling together with dust. When they are heavy enough, they fall. Snowflakes are small when it is very cold. Warmer temperatures mean larger, softer snowflakes. Sometimes you can catch a snowflake on your tongue. It's fun to spend time out in the snow and skate or just take a walk. Each snowflake has six sides and snowflakes come in a billion different shapes. In the spring the snow melts into the rivers and lakes. The illustrations are very sweet—light and airy watercolor paintings that work especially well with the subject matter. The text is large and the sentence structure simple for early readers. Numerous facts about snow are included at the end of the book. Despite what we have heard for years, researcher Nancy Knight did find two snowflakes that were exactly alike. 2003, Aladdin, Ages 3 to 8.
