The Snowy Day, by Anna Milbourne, is a fun, fun book to teach kids about cold weather and S N O W! We live in the south where a snowflake is a rarity and ponds don't freeze over, so this was a loved book by my kids. I often wish we lived up north just so they could play in the snow. But then I remember how awful it is to live in S N O W for a few months out of the year. Snow belongs on ski slopes according to me.
For kids who don't experience snow much, and for those who do, this is a beautifully illustrated book that explains in story form what snow is, how it's made and even what happens to the frogs in ponds when the pond freezes over for the winter. It's a great supplement for any school weather curriculum for young children. It's also a beautiful picture book to read to your children, especially in the HOT summer months when we are wishing we had a snow day ourselves.
