Loved this book! If you've ever wanted to know how snowflakes form and why they are shaped the way they are, this is the book to get. Libbrecht and Wing include their own beautiful snowflake pictures, historical pictures of snowflakes, instructions for making snowflake fossils, and tips for photographing snowflakes. This book is an accessible challenge for an older elementary reader. It made my children sad we don't live in a climate where snow ever falls.
