"Settle down in a comfy chair. . . . By the end, you'll be hoping there's a day when you can follow the careful directions for catching and viewing snow crystals." —Chicago Tribune
"The clear and direct narrative takes readers into the clouds to explain snow-crystal formation...and then zooms in on the actual crystals. Sure to get young scientists outside in the cold." —Kirkus Reviews
"Nature photographer Cassino's gallery of snow crystals is [a] riveting exhibition." —Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (starred review)

        November 1, 2009
        PreS-Gr 3-Simple sentences in large type offer basic information about the formation and structure of snow crystals while additional explanations and detail are presented in two sets of progressively smaller fonts. Aoyagi's watercolor and ink drawings show how a snow crystal develops from a tiny speck of soil, pollen, or other substances to become a complex six-sided structure. Numerous photographs of snow crystals reveal details of common shapes such as stars, plates, and columns. The images are large enough to share in a small-group setting. Instructions on how to catch and view snow crystals encourage readers to make their own observations. Libraries in areas where snow falls will definitely want to add this title to their collections, but it would enhance lessons on weather anywhere. A logical pairing would be with Jacqueline Martin's "Snowflake Bentley" (Houghton, 1998), the story of the man who pioneered methods to create photographs like the ones in this book."Kathy Piehl, Minnesota State University, Mankato"

        Starred review from December 1, 2009
        Grades 2-4 *Starred Review* Pairing particularly clear and engaging explanations with a mix of spare diagrams and close-up photos of snow crystalsall presented in an evocative gray-blue color schemethis introduction to the white stuff will impart a solid understanding of how crystals and flakes grow in the clouds and how temperature and other factors on the way down further affect the marvelous diversity of their forms. Young readers expecting the customary array of lacy stars wont be disappointedbut the dazzling and detailed close-ups also capture snow crystals in rarely seen shapes, from plates and columns to multilayered forms as complex as clockwork. With never a hint of hyperbole, the authors communicate such a contagious sense of wonder that few readers will be able to resist following the final pages simple directions for constructing a handheld snowflake observation stage and rushing outside at the first sign of snow in hopes of taking a closer look at one of natures most beautiful and ubiquitous phenomena. A perfect lead-in to Jacqueline Briggs Martins Snowflake Bentley (1998).(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2009, American Library Association.)
