Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Illustrated 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.

School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-A young child and a dog explore the wonders of winter in this appealing story. The author uses simple sentences to demystify the reason for snow, while still expressing the sense of excitement that youngsters feel about it. The colorful watercolor illustrations go perfectly with the text. There's an amazing amount of information packed into this short book. A delightful beginning reader.-Tracy Bell, Durham Public Schools, NC Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Bauer provides a simple explanation of snow in this beginning level easy reader, the second in a series of weather-themed volumes from this team. The text explains cloud formation, snow crystal formation and size, and snow's place in the water cycle, all in just a few simple sentences. Wallace provides charming watercolor illustrations of two children and a gray dog waiting for the snow and then having fun skating and sledding together. The younger child helps the main character to build a snowman on the cover, and both are so bundled up against the cold (in gender-neutral winter wear) that the reader can't be sure if the children are boys or girls. Bold blobs of white paint serve as the snowflakes against wintry blue skies, and the scenes of spring weather with melting snow include snow-capped peaks with pink and orange shadows or reflections splashed across the mountains. First- and second-grade teachers will find this useful in the classroom for science as well as for the easy reader shelves. (author's note) (Easy reader. 5-8)
