Snow Much to Read...

If I was a librarian in Florida,  I wouldn't have the opportunity to write this blog!  Here are some of my favorite snow books... check out at the Lemme Library! (Oh... but I would love to have a display of beach books out in December! 

May be I could move to Florida... hmmm)
Snowflake Bentley by Jaqueline Briggs Martin (B BEN)
A biography of a self-taught scientist who photographed thousands of individual snowflakes in order to study their unique formations. 
The Snowman by Raymond Briggs (E BRI)

Snow by Uri Shulevitz (E SHU)
