In full disclosure I will say that I know Ellen Yeomans, the author of this book. It has been a couple of decades since we’ve communicated (Ellen was in charge of a chapter of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators and I did some work for her at that time).
Snow can be quite magical – especially when you are a child. Here three young neighbors explore the snow and notice the differences between the kinds of snows.
This book is absolutely adorable. The poetry of the language is beautiful and very appropriate for reading to children and getting a sense of wonder and joy and snow.
The artwork by Andrea Offermann is really delightful. A vital part of any picture book is the artwork since most of the children who read/listen to a book will be captivated by the pictures. There is plenty here that will keep youngsters engaged with the book.
I would highly recommend this book to parents and grandparents looking for a great winter picture book.
Looking for a good book? Some Snow Is… by Ellen Yeomans with art by Andrea Offermann is a beautiful book, in both pictures and words, for youngsters.
I received a digital copy of this book from the publisher, through Edelweiss, in exchange for an honest review.
