An introduction to the magic, beauty and fun of snow for very young readers, perfect for fans of Ezra Jack Keats' classic The Snowy Day.

Snow softens, snow tricks, snow tracks, snow glows and snow snows and snows and snows, transforming a small village into a winter wonderland. A girl and her dog set out and make the most of every snow-filled moment: sledding, building snowmen and snowforts, making snowangels (and snowdogs), and drinking cocoa by a cozy fire as the snow continues to fall. This luminous and lively picture book celebrates the beauty, magic and excitement of snow with simple, easy-to-read text, comprised almost solely of verbs and action words, and gorgeous art that highlights the amazing colors of a snowy day. As inviting as the first snowfall, but so much warmer, Snow Falls encourages little people and big people to go outside and enjoy the snow . . . before it goes!

When the snow starts to fall, a little girl and her dog head out for a day full of wintery activities. She and her dog can slide in it, hide in it, use it to trick people, and all sorts of things. When it gets too rough, she can enjoy the beauty from the window of her warm house. The book ends perfectly with the brightness of spring as "Snow goes."

SNOW FALLS is a celebration of all the fun a child can have outside in the snow. I love that she has a dog as her companion to share the joy with. The illustrations use a vast array of colors to show the beauty of winter magic. Blending colors pop off the page as they contrast against the white snow. Kate Gardner uses simple words for early readers and incorporates rhyming to make each page flow together.

Final Verdict: I would recommend this to children aged two and up who live around snow because it gives them ideas of what they can do in it. It also encourages them to go outside and take in the beauty of nature. It's a perfect winter read to share while cuddled under a blanket.
