Book Review: Snow is Falling

Rating: ★★★☆☆

This is a straightforward introductory science book intended for preschoolers.  In it, the author describes some characteristics of snow (for example, snowflakes have six sides, they fall from clouds, and can be either powdery or wet) and its qualities (for example, it insulates the ground and can be used to make igloos, but can also be dangerous).

The text is readable and understandable for young explorers,  and the illustrations are adequate, but not memorable.  It engagingly invites children to interact with the element while providing larger categories for them to think about it.  This makes an excellent public library checkout to build on (or prepare them for) direct experience with snow.
