Snowball by Nina Crews shows Prospect Park Pre-schoolers in photgraphs as a class waits for a predicted snowfall that takes days to arrive.

The story is child centered, focusing on the child's point of view regarding the snowfall and the snowballs they make. The photo-collage picture book will appeal to young children.

For ages 2 to 5, snow, preschool, phonics, winter themes, and fans of Nina Crews.
Tana Hoban and Nina Crews make some of my favorite children's books using photography. Just something about them perfectly captures Brooklyn (NYC) life from a child's point of view. I always feel like I'm 6 years-old when I gaze at the pictures in their books. I love seeing myself reflected back in a familiar scenairo.

Eh, it was alright. I didn't really care for the art medium, but that's more about personal taste
used this with the infant/toddler class--they seemed to like it. Nice photographs.
