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
Book-loving mommy-to-be! Recently enjoyed The Hobbit, Becoming, and The Marvelous Magic of Miss Mabel.
4.75 / 7.0

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.
