The Story of Winter A Snowflake Falls by Rosie McCormick


The Story of Winter A Snowflake Falls by Rosie McCormick

From the first frosts to the violence of a blizzard and the magic of playing in the snow, this beautiful book traces the main events of winter. Stunningly illustrated with colour photographs and written as an engaging narrative, this is perfect for all young children learning about winter for the first time and becoming aware of the seasonal changes around them. Mention is also made of significant festivals associated with winter, and the book concludes with a winter myth from Canada.
