We have decided to celebrate the magic of snow (and lack of the white stuff in the northeast) by hosting a Snow Party – complete with stories, crafts, science experiments and snacks. Followed by a trip outdoors in real snow if the temperatures drop and the rain changes to snow.
Read “Snowflake Bentley” (Caldecott Medal Book) by Jacqueline Briggs, illustrated by Martin Mary Azarian. This is the true story of Wilson Bentley, a farmer born in 1865 in Jericho, Vermont, a small town between Lake Champlain and Mount Mansfield.

Beautiful, bold woodcut illustrations.
