Snowflakes falling! What a treat! Friends gather outside to celebrate the first snowfall of the season with snowball fights, sledding, building igloos, drinking hot chocolate, and making the most of a windy, wintry day. With rhyming text and cheerful illustrations, this is a charming celebration of the winter season.

Praise For First Snow

"Short sentences and spot-on rhythms give the outdoor adventure a bouncy excitement... A sweet suburban/rural contrast to the snowy day enjoyed by Peter in the city." —Kirkus Reviews
