Featured Book: “Snow”

Picture book cover of "Snow" by Cynthia Rylant

There is so much story in snow. When I think back to all my snow memories, I tend to group them into “snow” or winter, but what Cynthia Rylant did for me, in “Snow”, that she can do for you and your students, is to think of those different types of snow moments. The new fallen snow, the snowman snow, the snow that sends you home early, etc. ,and all the chapters of stories that go with each type. We just had our first snow of the season, and the bright sunlight is already calling it back…but I got outdoors and went for a long walk in it. It was so peaceful. What are your snow stories? What are your student’s? This book will surely spark those tales in such a comforting way.
