Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 2-5 - This colorful story explains numerous weather phenomena. Author Carolyn White narrates the tale, accompanied by character vocals and appropriate sound effects. Occasional refrains that reinforce each concept are scattered throughout. The main character, Snowff, a snowflake kid, ventures through thunder, lightning, a tornado, and steam with the assistance of his grandfather. It is a bit disturbing that Snowff comments several times, "Grandpa seemed kind of old; he thought lots of things were dangerous," although he later acknowledges that perhaps grandpa does know some things. The story is full of adventure, although the language is sometimes forced. For example, When Lightning speaks to Snowff, he says, "Hey, tell me, what else did your grandpappy say about me? Huh? Huh? Huh? Did he tell you that I help plants by creating nitrogen?" The book's illustrations, drawn and painted by Bruce Manchee, are colorful, but are too busy and lack continuity; Snowff's appearance changes throughout the book. A glossary explains weather terms in kid-friendly language. A supplemental choice for the science curriculum.-Kirsten Martindale, formerly Menomonie Public Library, WI
