A book my 5 yr old as well as my twin 3 yr olds loved. A solid reading level 1 book, this cute story keeps all ages engaged with the bright colorful pictures and cute story. A great addition to any children's library.

The First Snowfall by Anne F. Rockwell is a simple story about a little girl's experiences in the first big snowfall of the year.

The simple text features a large font. The winter clothing the girl wears is listed, along with her activities, such as shoveling snow, making a snowman, brushing snow off the car, getting a sled, skis and poles, sledding and skiing at the park, drinking hot cocoa and playing in the snow.

Rockwell's illustrations are rendered in pencil and watercolor, and depict winter

I love to read this book to my students around the first snowfall. It does a good job of describing what you need to do when it snows (shovel and brush off the car, etc) as well as discusses various winter vocabulary.

I believe this is a re-issue of the original book because I noticed that the original pub date is 1992 and I seriously remember reading it to one of my first classes.

Nice simple story about what to do in the snow - this would be a great story starter for getting kids to share what they do and see in the snow.
