Snowflake Books


Is it snowing? Do you want to play in the snow and see the snowflakes as they fall? Can you see the beauty of each different flake? Learn about snowflakes.

Winter means cold weather, but it also means snow. It is a wonderful time to learn about snowflakes. Read some books, look at the differences in the snowflakes and then go outside and see them for yourself. Enjoy the snow with your children, and the opportunity to learn new things.

Millions of Snowflakes by Mary McKenna Siddals
A fun, rhyming book about a little girl, bundled in her warmest snowsuit and playing in the snow with her dog. She tastes it and makes snow angels. It is a good book to read-aloud while cuddling your little one.

The Snowflake: A Water Cycle by Neil Waldman
This book takes a drop of water through the months of the year as it melts into a stream, passes through an irrigation system, becomes a summer fog, drops as rain, flows through the city in the water pipes, ends up into the ocean, becomes a cloud again and ends up as a snowflake on a mountain and then the cycle starts all over. Great book for young readers 6 through 8 years.

Snowflake Bentley by Jacqueline Briggs Martin
This is the true story of a young boy who grew up in Vermont. William Bentley is determined that he will be able to use his camera to capture snowflakes through photography. This beautiful book won the 1999 Caldecott Medal for outstanding illustrations. He saw the beauty around him and was determined and dedicated to sharing the beauty of the snowflakes. It is a good book to share as it shows his scientific interest and how he made it happen. Kudos to his parents who supported his interests.

The Snowflake Sisters by J. Patrick Lewis
Crystal and Ivory, (the snowflake sisters)- are non-identical twins. As they start on their journey you get to see their differences and see them swirling and twirling on the pages. As they blow through the air they get to hitch a ride on Santa’s sleigh. Ending up in New York City they get to see the ball drop on New Year’s Eve and enjoy their time in Central Park. This is a great book to read-aloud, and the artwork with collage illustrastions are a delight to the eye. Read and discuss.

The Snowflake: Winter’s Secret Beauty by Kenneth Libbrecht
This book is a collection of amazing photography of snow crystals. Kenneth Libbrecht uses a unique system which allows him to take super-detailed micro images of these miniature ice masterpieces. The text is educational and the photography is captivating. The first seven chapters explain how and why snow crystals form, and explain the history of our understanding of snow. Chapter 8 is the longest, but the whole book is enjoyable and inspiring reading. The photography is amazing!

Snowflakes in Photographs by W.A. Bentley
Snowflakes in Photographs is a collection of black and white photos created by Wilson Bentley. If you read the book, Snowflake Bentley with your child you will want to look at the 72 snowflakes – photographs that he actually took. Every snowflake is different!

Toby and the Snowflakes by Julie Halperni
Toby is sad that his friend has moved away, but when the snow comes he makes friends with the snowflakes. He creates snow angels, and makes snowmen and then the snow melts. He is sad again, but then a new boy moves in down the street and he has a new buddy. This book respects the feelings of young Toby and helps to answer questions about change and loneliness.
