About the Author:

Franklyn M. Branley is the originator of the Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science series and the award-winning author of over 140 popular books for readers of all ages. He is Astronomer Emeritus and former Chairman of the American Museum-Hayden Planetarium. Dr. Branley lives in Brunswick, Maine.

Review:

"What is good and bad about snow?" is the central question of this new title by the founder of the fine Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science series. As in his other titles, Branley is successful in presenting scientific facts to the very young, moving from the most basic observations about snow ("sometimes snow is wer and sticky...sometimes snow is light, dry, and fluffy") to exploring the effects that snow has on people, animals, and the earth. ...There are plenty of useful beginning words, concepts, and activities, extended by uncluttered, attractive illustrations and a concluding resource section for teachers. For kids from all climates who know about the fun but ask, "What does snow do?"ALA BooklistThe most important changes in this revised edition are in the illustrations and format. The watercolors are fresher, more child oriented, and include youngsters of different ethnic backgrounds. There are even more snowflakes, evoking a much stronger feeling about the magic of snow. The attractive design includes larger pages and typeset and a cleaner, neater appearance. The text remains much the same, although the language has been updated (for example, "Eskimo" has been changed to "in the far north, people...") and some explanation are smoother and more easily understood, such as the thermometer experiment. Two additional experiments plus some websites have been appended. This book would work well in science units or thematic storytimes.School Library Journal
