Simon is a curious little boy. He wants to know how many snowflakes fall in a snowstorm, but they come down too fast to count. When he learns that there are as many snowflakes as stars in the sky, he tries to count them, but they race across the night sky. Simon decides to visit his friends in the forest, and finds something much better to count there.
