White Snow, Bright Snow by Alvin Tresselt
White Snow, Bright Snow starts with a lovely poem. It then follows the progression through a snowstorm to spring. Using only a few bright colors to highlight the white snow, it’s very visually interesting. The story is a bit old fashioned, it tells of a postman, a farmer, a police officer and his wife and uses their experiences and observations to share about the snow. It is sweet nonetheless, but the writing doesn’t quite live up to the promise of the initial poem.
Definitely best for little ones up through about first grade.
