About the Book

Overview

Jane Yolen's wintry, shivery poems are inspired by the stunning photographs of Jason Stemple, who has captured the imagesof snow in all its breathtaking beauty. After children enjoy these poems and pictures, they will look at snow in a different way --with their imaginations as well as your eyes.

Reviews

"The varied tone and multihued imagery of the poetry and photographs are sure to spark an enjoyment of winter." --School Library Journal

"Use this to take the chill off of the chill of winter, to prime kids for an outdoor excursion with an eye to writing their own verses, or to cool 'em off on a hot day at the other end of the year." --Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
