"Children love snow
better than anyone does,
and they never complain
as they pull on their
red boots and mittens
and make plans
on their tongues."
The collaboration between the author and the illustrator in Snow is perfect. The words and illustrations mesh exceedingly well and the joy of falling snow is almost palpable. The art work is beautiful and busy and even the very young child will enjoy this book without knowing how to read. This is a great book for all the little snow bunnies out there!
I'll be giving this as a gift to friends and family for years to come. The illustrations are works of art. Don't hesitate to order this one!
Cynthia Rylant is one of my favorite authors of children's books. She simply has a way about her that naturally attracts the young and delights the child in all of us. She has teamed up with Lauren Stringer on this one and I must say that this is truly a winning team...they are quite in tune.
This is the story of snow; all kinds of snow:
"Some snows fall only lightly,
to make you notice
the delicate limbs of trees,
the light falling
from the lamppost,
a sparrow's small feet."
You can close your eyes and just see and feel this delightful kind of snow, especially if you make just a wee effort and view it through the child part of your mind.
"The best snow
is the snow that
comes softly in the night,
like a shy friend
afraid to knock,
so she thinks she'll
just wait in the yard
until you see her.
This is the snow that brings you peace."
This work not only incorporates the very young, but the reader is given a steady flow of beloved parts of their lives; their animals, grandparents...family. Both the writer and the artist have conveyed much love and much sweet caring throughout the work.
This is an ideal work to read to the little ones before bed time on a cold winter's evening. The writing is peaceful; the art work soothing.Read more ›
