Read full description of the books Snow:From the deep midnight blue endpages featuring a single snowflake drifting, you know that you are in for a special treat. This picture book explores the various types of snow through its poetic verse and deeply colored illustrations. There is snow that is peaceful, snow that holds promise, snow that outlines and illuminates, snow that buries and snow that is full of memories. As a native Wisconsinite, I have seen all of these snows and loved each and every type too.
Rylant's verse is simple and deep, taking the time to reveal the magic of each type of snowfall, the beauty of thick and thin snow. Stringer's illustrations are lovely, filled with the different colors of snow from peachy warm to midnight blue to chill white. They move from coldness to warmth and back again using deep colors. Each of her illustrations evokes a different emotion or feeling, together they marry into a landscape of snow.
Highly recommended for anyone having a snowy day like we are. This book's poetry allows it to work with small children, but will also be of interest to older children for the same reason. The verse expands the age level considerably from other picture books. Appropriate for ages 3-9.
