First snow, surprise snow: Nature's sparkly magic show
The award-winning celebration of preschoolers and snow is now available as a board book
For small children, snow is a wonder. It sparkles and glitters. It transforms the outside world. Every kind of snow brings its own magic. It invites snow angels, skating, fort-building, and snowballs. Even blizzard days are exciting, when routines are overturned and everyone bands together to clear the snow away. For the youngest among us, winter is magical.
In Snow Days, author Deborah Kerbel captures that magic with nimble couplets that Kirkus Reviews calls a playful celebration of wintry weather. Illustrator Miki Sato's fascinating textural collage art, called deceptively simple by Publishers Weekly, looks intimately touchable. She recreates the coziness and spectacle of the season in paper, felt, and embroidery silk, creating masterpieces that invite readers to look again and again.
With a diverse cast of children, a closing spread of five age-appropriate STEM experiments, and a sturdy Toddler Tough board book format, Snow Days will invite repeated reads everywhere from lap time to story time to bedtime.
