Snow

Children and snow are meant to be together. Remember the joy of watching the season’s first snowflakes fall when you were a child? Remember snowball fights and snow forts? Sledding and snowmen? Roy McKie and P.D. Eastman bring the winter season to life in a delightfully warm tale of childhood fascination. Reading Snow with your children is a wonderful way to share your own childhood snow memories with them—even if you live where the sun always shines.

Tie-in Activity: Make a “snow bottle” for your child. Fill a clean, clear, empty screw-top plastic bottle with 1 part water to 1 part corn syrup, and then add silver glitter (a funnel helps). Hot glue the cap securely to the bottle top and let dry. Flip the bottle over to watch it “snow.”
