LoveReading View on Snowflakes

Bbeebies presenter Cerrie Burnell gets to the heart of what it feels like to be an outsider in this touching and sensitive story about a little girl adjusting to a new way of life. Newly arrived from the city to stay with her grandmother in the country, Mia finds everything to be frighteningly different. But then the snow falls and Mia realises that every flake is different – just like every child – but that they all also have much in common. Mia’s experience of change and being an outsider ends in a happy friendship which will give a reassuring message to all readers.

Snowflakes Synopsis

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.”
