" Gorgeous, crisply colored illustrations accompany this picture book that extols the joys of snowfall. Snowfall makes you notice things: the delicate limbs of trees, a sparrow's small feet, snow angels, and snow friends. Snow doesn't last forever... only memories.Used for Snowy Things Storytime-01/2010. " said.

" I second everything Jenn said. A gorgeous, poetic book that makes me long for snow and childhood. "And the snow, while it is here, reminds us of this: that nothing lasts forever except memories." The snowflakes in the illustrations appear to be glowing. Noses are pink, and hoods are pointed a la Ezra Jack Keats' little boy in the snow. " said.

" SNOW is a book which captures the magical feel snow can impart. The gentle snowfall on a quiet night. The heavy fall that screams FUN! From first page to last, this warm book about a cold subject carries you through a "snow day," from making snow angels and snowmen to coming back indoors and playing games while sipping hot cocoa.Snow is glisteningly delightful! " said.

" Welcoming snowscapes, glowing orange coziness and carefully, crafted verse capture our very personal yet wonderfully universal relationship with snow in this exquisite reflection on the fleeting sweetness of life.You can listen in on our chat about this book on our An Egg is Quiet. " said.

" "And the snow, while it is here, reminds us of this: that nothing lasts forever except memories. And while the snow is here this brief moment, let us take a walk and see how beautiful the world is and then come back to our white, quiet homes and make something warm to drink and maybe read or play a game or tell each other all that we've been thinking."Stunning illustrations and lovely little meditations on all the ways snow brings joy. " said.

" Cynthia Rylant's picture-book poem, Snow, describes snow in simple yet elegant terms a child can understand, while an adult can appreciate it as poetry and not the childish imitation of it frequently found in picture books. Lauren Stringer's illustrations depict a girl and her grandmother enjoying snow in all its multifaceted glory and variations. I could treasure reading this book to myself but of course, it's even better with a young child to share it with. " said.

"I was very impressed with the author's style of this story and the descriptions she used in reference to snow. She made snow very beautiful in many aspects. I love how she allowed snow to take over and almost tell its own story of what beauty is created with snow. When it is snow's turn, it touches everywhere and creates a whole new world. It is cold, but yet it makes us feel cozy inside as we cuddle up by the fire and have hot chocolate. The garden and flowers sleep allowing the snow to be present and have its turn. Great story!!!" said.

"This book's illustrations and poetry makes it one of the most interesting children's books I have ever read. the verses of poetry were easy to understand, and I believe that children as young as 4 or 5 can understand it and be intrigued by it. I know a lot of us do not like snow because we do not like being cold, and so we can tell children how we do not like it, which would make them not like it. But this book shows how snow can be beautiful and intriguing and more than just cold. I would definitely introduce a book like this to my own children." said.
