We're missing snow this year.
We're missing all the fun things you can only do with snow.
We're missing snow days.
Today's book can help us to remember all the wonder and joy of a snow covered world.

The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats is celebrating it's 50th anniversary this year. It won the Caldecott Medal in 1963 for beautiful cut paper and watercolor artwork. How wonderful that this timeless story is still available for today's children as it was for their parents and grandparents.
Share it with someone you love today and dream of snow.

Science Extension Idea:
While we can't make real snowflakes, you can create a very cool science experiment that results in a
Borax Snowflake. It's not as complicated as it might seem and once the snowflake is complete, you can use a magnifying glass to look at the beautiful crystals that have formed. Give it a try!
