The Smallest Snowflake

We rated this book:


Snowflakes chatter about the days ahead when they’ll descend from the clouds, falling to the soft surface of the Earth. One hopes to travel great distances to a forest where creatures roam wild. Another dreams of sheltering on the pinnacle of a pristine castle, while the littlest one simply yearns to find warmth. When she lands in the window box of a cottage in which a fire roars inside, she knows she’s found home. As spring nears, the other snowflakes slowly melt away, leaving her alone to bask in a world of sunlight and a growing adoration for a nearby friend.

The author uniquely tells this story through the eyes of a tiny snowflake who, despite the discouragement from others, dares to hold onto her vision of the future. In it, she finds true love and contentment, even if they’re not destined to last. Her acceptance of this illuminates her bravery and innocence. Children will admire her sense of purpose and her strong spirit, and they’ll become entranced by the quaint illustrations that bring her tale to life. They’re laced with soft hues and eye-catching details that’ll spark their imaginations. Those ages five to nine will enjoy cuddling up to read this precious book.
