When the Snow Falls, written in verse by Linda Booth Sweeney and beautifully illustrated by Jana Christy, captures the magic of the first snowfall of the winter season ... 'Frost paints. / Skies gray. / Windows sparkle. / Snow? Yay!'

Grandma is visiting, so brother and sister head outside to enjoy the white drifts with her. Out comes the sleigh and into the forest they wander: 'Woods hush. / Fields glisten. / Wren sings. / We listen.' They head into town and help Grandpa clear a path with shovels. They toboggan, make snow angels, and when they feel the chill, head inside for hot drinks and a warm cuddle.

There's always a lot going on when the snow falls and this charming picture book captures those events - and feelings - very well.
