What happens when you make the snow a main character in a story? You get this gorgeous marriage of minor text with gorgeous pictures. The story asks the question: “If snow is the main character of the story, what does it do?”
The text is very simple, but perfect for this book. I can’t wait for my Mom to read it to her three-year-old class. I love that the text made the snow the main character of the book. I like that the author kept the text to two words to five on every couple of pages. It looks easy, but I’m sure it was hard to cut it down that much. The illustrations are GORGEOUS! These panels take my breath away. They are just perfect for every set of words. Snow starts. The little girl sees it out the window. Snow tracks. The little girl and her dog are shown from above with a maze of tracks in the snow. Snow smiles. The illustration is of a bunch of snowmen smiling. I think any illustrator could learn something from studying these amazing pictures. The age range for this book is two to five years old.
