There are all kinds of snow. There is the kind snow that “comes softly in the night.” swirling outside in the night until the little children wake up to visit with it. There is the kind that “begins to fall in fat, cheerful flakes” whenever you’d rather be out in it instead of where you are. Snow is beautiful and it swirls in all different kinds of ways and times for every child to enjoy. Some snows are heavy, while others just flutter to the ground.

“Children love snow
better than anyone does,
and they never complain
as they pull on their
red boots and mittens
and make plans
to catch
wet flakes
on their tongues.”

The collaboration between the author and the illustrator in Snow is perfect. The words and illustrations mesh exceedingly well and the joy of falling snow is almost palpable. The art work is beautiful and busy and even the very young child will enjoy this book without knowing how to read. This is a great book for all the little snow bunnies out there!
