What's First Snow About

Publisher Summary

Snowflakes falling! What a treat! Friends gather outside to celebrate the first snowfall of the season with snowball fights, sledding, building igloos, drinking hot chocolate, and making the most of a windy, wintry day. With rhyming text and cheerful illustrations, this is a charming celebration of the winter season.

Trusted Reviews & Ratings

B is for Bookworm
Human Development Degree, Book-loving aunt

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.
