When you combine the talents of Patricia MacLachlan and Steven Kellogg, there's not much more to say...
Snowflakes Fall arrived today. My heart is full. With the simplicity of MacLachlan's words, I was once again moved and inspired. With the honesty of Kellogg's illustrations, I was once again reminded and touched.
As a tribute to Sandy Hook, this book is meant to be joyful and spirit-filled. It is. If you haven't purchased this book. You should. Read it once for your head. Read it once for your heart. And then read it to your students... tomorrow.
To Sit on garden
And evergreen trees
On the fur of dogs
And the tongues of laughing children--
No two the same--
And we remember the children. I just want to say thank you to both the author and the illustrator for creating such a fine tribute to life. Thank you.
