After spending three snow days at home, shoveling the sidewalk multiple times, and enjoying the beauty of a Colorado snowstorm, this is the perfect book to mention...
The Story of Snow: The Science of Winter's Wonder.
It's by Mark Cassino, a nature photographer, and Jon Nelson, a scientist who has studied snow and crystals for many years. Together, they've created a wonderful addition to any collection of snow books.
The snow crystals in the book are beautifully captured in photographs. The books answers questions about snow... how it forms, snowflake shapes, etc. It's a scientific exploration of snow. Simple, but informative.
Doesn't make shoveling any easier... but it does help a young scientist know how to capture and study snowflakes.
