From School Library Journal
PreSchool-Grade 1-The most important changes in this revised edition are in the illustrations and format. The watercolors are fresher, more child oriented, and include youngsters of different ethnic backgrounds. There are even more snowflakes, evoking a much stronger feeling about the magic of snow. The attractive design includes larger pages and typeset and a cleaner, neater appearance. The text remains much the same, although the language has been updated (for example, "Eskimo" has been changed to "in the far north, people-") and some explanations are smoother and more easily understood, such as the thermometer experiment. Two additional experiments plus some Web sites have been appended. This book would work well in science units or thematic storytimes.

"What's good and bad about snow?" is the central question of this new title by the founder of the fine Let's-Read-and-Find-Out-Science series. As in his other titles, Branley is successful in presenting scientific facts to the very young, moving from the most basic observations about snow ("sometimes snow is wet and sticky . . . sometimes snow is light, dry, and fluffy") to exploring the effects that snow has on people, animals, and the earth. Some of the facts seem overly simplistic even for this young set ("It is always cold when it snows"), but there are plenty of useful beginning words, concepts, and activities, extended by uncluttered, attractive illustrations and a concluding resource section for teachers. For kids from all climates who know about the fun but ask, "What does snow do?" Gillian Engberg --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

There are simple experiments that can be used in discovering air, requiring ingredients that can be easily found in one's home. Curious young minds will also discover what the difference is between fish and humans when it comes to breathing underwater. There is a bonus section at the end of the book that provides more experiments about air. I highly recommend this book to any parent or teacher who'd like to teach basic science concepts to children.
