This picture book about the first snow captures the excitement and magic that snow and winter can bring, along with all of the fun activities it provides! They make a snowman, sled down a hill, build an igloo, have a snowball fight, taste the snowflakes, and drink hot chocolate. A fun wintery book, but very little text, so I think I would enjoy it more in a board book format.
