"One little snowflake falls on my nose. It makes me shiver from my head to my toes." A little girl plays outside on a cold winter day, counting each snowflake as it falls softly to the ground. Bundled in her warmest snowsuit, she savors the snow, tasting each flake as it falls on her tongue, and makes snow angels. Simple rhyming text captures the joy of a winter afternoon ...more

*This book is a not counting to a million. There is one phrase at the end the references a million snowflakes.*

A little one is exploring snowflakes and counts to five. This paired well with snowflakes on the flannel board.

This is a great book to read aloud to younger children (babies and toddlers) because there are not many words on each page. It covers the concept of counting and exposes children to the early literacy skill of phonological awareness through rhyming. This short book effectively expresses the experience of the joy children find in the simplest things, such as snow falling in wintertime. It has wonderful illustrations and a nice flow with the numbers and rhyming. This is a delight to read as the se ...more

This sweet, winter counting book is a perfect companion to a snowy day. With gentle illustrations and simple words, this is a great book to share with an child or early reader. The muted colors and short prose all echo the quiet scene that the book lays out. It is a simple, sweet story-perfect for a snowy day.

A really sweet counting, winter story. Unfortunately, it didn't arrive in time for my lap time this year, so I didn't get to use it. 1/24/13

I love this and the one little toddler that came out for lap time on our coldest day did too. 1/7/14

Went over very well in my toddler snow program. 1/27/14

Used again for my Lap Time program and it was my favorite and went over well. Maybe 4.5

This is a cute counting book of snowflakes falling one by one until there is five. I love that there is an action after each one. The book is quite small, but I hope to use it for a smaller group during a storytime on snow. I like the fact that I can get the audience to join in on the actions along with the story. It can be very interactive.

This book about snowflakes has wonderful; illustrations and captures the true feeling of being in a gentle snow. The pictures make it easy to decipher the text. This book also demonstrates counting to five.

In Nevada we don't often have snow.

I would wish that Meimei, and all the little girls and boy who live here in Vegas, could experience the pure joy and wonder of a snowfall the way this little girl and her faithful dog do!

This almost wordless counting book is perfect for the youngest child and celebrates the delight children feel when playing in the snow. Enjoy before you revel in your own snowy play with your child!

Adorable counting picture book. The rhyming is perfect. :)
A cute winter story for storytime. We used it all the time when I was doing team-storytime for giant groups in Washington.

The shortest bedtime story I've ever read. My daughters and I just looked at each other when it ended. "Read it again." she said. It was two minutes well spent overall I'd say.

This was perfect with the pre-k class. They were able to anticipate some of the rhyming words and help count the snowflakes.

This is a good book for younger grades. It helps with counting and seasons. Inferencing can be taught as well, which I saw in my kindergarten classroom today.
