Synopsis

Snowflakes by Cerrie Burnell

Mia has come to live with her Grandma in a land of forests and snow. It isn't at all like her old life in the city, and at first she feels very different from the new children she sees. But when she watches the snow falling around her one night, Mia realises that she is just like one of the snowflakes - unique and perfect in her own way.

A beautiful story about new beginnings and making friends by CBeebies presenter Cerrie Burnell.

Burnell said the book was dedicated to her own daughter Mia, who is of dual heritage, "because as a parent I want to see books that reflect my family". She added: "However it is not for her. It is for everyone. For every child or indeed adult who has ever felt different. And hopefully the message is clear, ‘every snowflake is different, every snowflake is perfect’ and in many ways so are we.”
