“Snow begins with a speck”. For the youngest readers, read the bold words on each page. Older readers will enjoy the explanations and captions. Close-ups of real snow crystals that make up snowflakes fascinate, and diagrams of snow crystals illustrate their shapes and growth.
The last pages show how to catch snow in order to study its varied crystals. Written by Michigan photographer, Mark Cassino, with Jon Nelson, Ph.D., and illustrated by Nora Aoyagi, this nonfiction gem will please many ages. The author links lead to much more snow-themed information.
