CATALOG COPY DESCRIPTION: "Mama, what is snow?" asks a curious little bunny on a crisp winter day. Just as every snowflake is unique, so are the names used to describe snow and its ever-changing nature. Sometimes snow is like the white wings of butterflies, other times it's like a clever magician who makes the landscape disappear! Poet Judi K. Beach's first picture book was inspired by Inuit culture (which has a very precise terminology to describe different kinds of snow), as well as her childhood memories of winters spent in Kentucky and Ohio. Loretta Krupinski breathtakingly renders Judi's sparse, lyrical text in paintings of serene landscapes and bustling borders. This young picture book is perfect for curling up to and sharing on any snowy, winter day.
