If you are looking for something a little less informational, check out Ken Libbrecht's Little Book of Snowflakes. I gave that one out to teachers and friends and was enjoyed by all. It is more of a small coffeetable book with lots of amazing photographs.
If you love snowflakes, this is one (there are three) of the books for you! It is a very readable and fascinating study of what comes out of the sky in large flakes or tiny particles, the different parts of a snowflake, and the simple beauty of nature. I bought all three of Ken Libbrecht's snowflakes books and I love them all.
