WINTER'S FIRST SNOWFLAKE

Author: Cheri L Hallwood

Illustrator: Patricia M. Rose

Reserve at the Library

Publisher: Forever Young Publishers,

Material: hard cover

Summary: Winter is here and it's time for snow. A young snowflake wonders out loud about the journey to earth. This is a seasonal picture book.

Type of Reading: bedtime story, playtime reading, read aloud book

Recommended Age: read together: 2 to 8; read yourself: 9 to 11

Interest Level: 2 to 8

Age of Child: Read with a 4 1/2 year old child

Young Reader Reaction: We couldn't turn the pages fast enough. When we asked our preschooler what s/he liked best, the answer was "it's purple."

Adult Reader Reaction: The illustrations are just beautiful; soft colors help create the quiet hush we always sense with the first snow of the year.

Pros: The story is simple, allowing curiosity to move with each page, as well as chances to invite kids to add their own feelings and create an ending all their own.

Cons: None, really.

Borrow or Buy: Borrow. The seasonal nature and the simplicity of its telling limit the long-term value of the book.
