Editorial Reviews

"What is good and bad about snow?" is the central question of this new title by the founder of the fine Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science series. As in his other titles, Branley is successful in presenting scientific facts to the very young, moving from the most basic observations about snow ("sometimes snow is wer and sticky...sometimes snow is light, dry, and fluffy") to exploring the effects that snow has on people, animals, and the earth. ...There are plenty of useful beginning words, concepts, and activities, extended by uncluttered, attractive illustrations and a concluding resource section for teachers. For kids from all climates who know about the fun but ask, "What does snow do?" (ALA Booklist)
