Part of the series "My First Look at Weather," the five sections of this title explain the formation of snow, its dangers, etc. The first section, "How Snow Forms," shares that wind catches the particles of dust and plants, and "water vapor clings to these tiny bits. If it is very cold, the bits and water vapor freeze to make ice crystals." Ice crystals connect to form snow crystals, ultimately forming snowflakes. "How Snowflakes Form" clarifies that snow crystals connect to snow crystals, creating snowflakes. The dangers of blizzards and the effects of avalanches are discussed in the "Snowstorms" section. The fourth section, "Fun in the Snow," suggests activities for snow days and appropriate attire as well: wear warm clothes; go sledding or skiing; walk in snowshoes; ride snowmobiles; make snowmen, snow forts, or snow angels. The final "Hands-On" section offers suggestions for a fun craft to create paper snowflakes. Additional information provided includes: an index, a vocabulary section, further reading suggestions, and a list of helpful web sites. The colorful photographs and the simplified wording and explanations make this book a great resource for young children.
