The Snowflake
By Benji Davies

Flap Copy Description:
High, high up in the clouds, a tiny snowflake is made. Perfectly fluffy and white, she tumbles and bounces inside the cloud, but then she begins to fall...
Exquisitely written and beautifully illustrated, The Snowflake tells the tale of one snowflake and one little girl - both longing for their own special place in the world. They discover that wherever we go, and however we fall, in the end we all find a way to shine.

My Thoughts:
This beautiful picture book begins its story high in the winter sky, something I find fascinating - and I believe young children will too. The journey the snowflake is thrust into is a lovely metaphor for life. I highly recommend The Snowflake for readers aged four to eight!
