Overview

In Snowflakes Fall, Newbery Medalist Patricia MacLachlan and award-winning artist Steven Kellogg portray life's natural cycle: its beauty, its joy, and its sorrow. Together, the words and pictures offer the promise of renewal that can be found in our lives-snowflakes fall, and return again as raindrops so that flowers can grow. MacLachlan and Kellogg, who are longtime friends, were moved to collaborate on a message of hope for children and their families following the tragic events in Sandy Hook, Connecticut, on December 14, 2012. Kellogg lived in Sandy Hook for thirty-five years-he raised his family there and was an active member of the community. With Snowflakes Fall, they have created a truly inspiring picture book that is both a celebration of life and a tribute to the qualities that make each individual unique. In honor of the community of Sandy Hook and Newtown, Random House, the publisher of Snowflakes Fall, has made a donation to the Sandy Hook School Support Fund. Random House is also donating 25,000 new books to the national literacy organization First Book in the community's honor and in support of children everywhere. This Read & Listen Edition contains audio narration.

    Beautifully illustrated story with a subtle message of hope and life.

    Snowflakes Fall   
    by Patricia Maclachlan
    Illustrations by Steven Kellogg 

    Celebrating the uniqueness of each life Snowflakes Fall is a thoughtfully written book for children.  
    Like each snowflake that falls no two lives are just the same.  

    The seasons of life are seen in snowflakes.  Where Spring brings rain, Winter brings snow rain.  
    Life like the seasons progresses through times of trouble and sorrow and yet there are times of
    joy and happiness as well.

    Snowflakes Fall celebrates the joys of knowing life even if it is fleeting like a snowflake falling to
    the earth.  Written in honor of those who lost their lives in the Sandy Hook/Newtown shooting I liked
    how the book has a trail of snow angels at the end.  This book will appeal to children and parents
    alike and is highly recommended.

    I was provided a digital loan of this title in exchange for my review.

    I checked this out of the library, but now I definitely want to own a copy. Such a simple, beautifully written book, especially after knowing it was written to help those in the Sandy Hook and Newtown, Connecticut communities.

    Delightful Read!

    This book was given to a 2year old and she was delighted with the pictures and requested the story over and over. Wonderful, simple and beautifully illustrated.
