Rating/Response: 5. This book captures the wonder and amazement of the first snow. It would be great to read around this time when there is lots of snow starting to pile up. The pictures in this book are great and go along with the words. This book also won a Caldecott Award! I think kids will really enjoy this.
One question you would ask before a read aloud: When was the first time you remember playing in the snow?
