  • Teaches how snow forms in a way little ones can understand. I thought the diagrams and limiting what was shown on each page really helped kids focus. I think the overall simplicity feeling when flipping through the book is much better than the jam-packed pop-up text boxes and over color pages of other kid science books.

  • This is a fabulous book full of great pictures and information about snow. Enjoyable for adults and children who love snow.

  • This book does not translate well into a kindle edition book. I haven't ever seen the book in person, but I would imagine it is laid out more logically.

  • My class of preschool kids enjoy this look at snowflakes. While it may be intended for an older audience, the 3 year olds in my class have requested this book over and over. We carefully trace the speck of dirt becoming a snowflake and carefully count the "points" on the snowflakes each time. Excellent book!!

  • Beautiful photos of snowflakes...the real deal! Excellent details to make this a keeper for children. Would also be a wonderful tool for those teaching children!

  • This book is just something fun to know. I bought this for my grade school grandchildren. We live where it doesn't snow. Thought it would just be fun to teach and then go to the mountains to the snow this winter.

  • This is a good book for children and adults alike. With pictures and descriptions (not too long, not too short) it acquaints the reader with the basics of snow, how it is formed and why it looks like flakes.
