9781442467194: The Snowflake Sisters

Join two snowflake sisters -- quick! -- as they spiral down to glimpse St. Nick.

Then roller-coaster on and fall upon New York and the New Year's ball.

Once it's dropped and the old year's out, arc on up to Central Park. There, before you grow much older, lay awhile on a snowboy's shoulder!

From Booklist:

PreS-Gr. 2. Lewis' clever poetic text about two snowflake sisters, one wearing fleece, one in lace, could have gone several different ways, depending on the artwork. Happily, it's hard to imagine anything more engaging than Desimini's collage art, which delightfully catches the wordplay. Crystal and Ivory, nonidentical twins, sweep down from a gossamer cloud and tag along on Santa's sleigh, eventually finding themselves in Manhattan, where they celebrate New Year's. But Midtown is a good place to get squished if you're a snowflake, so the sisters ride the wind to Central Park, where they land on a snowman, remaining until the inevitable springtime melt. There are so many terrific artistic touches here, including the Empire State Building created from a transit map, and the sisters themselves, so tiny in some spreads, they will be an entertaining challenge to find. Another delightful pairing of Lewis and Desimini's considerable talents. Ilene Cooper

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2-Although the Snowflake Sisters hitch a ride on Santa's sleigh early in their journey and observe him delivering presents, this story is more about the cycle of snow and winter than Christmas per se. The setting is New York City, captured through witty collage illustrations that make use of such materials as rice paper, maps, newsprint, and Scrabble letters. Lewis's elegant and fluid rhymed text offers surprises on every page, and the inevitable ending-brought about by "the splendor-ender, Spring"-gives promise of rebirth and renewal. A prime read-aloud choice for storytimes or one-on-one sharing.-S. P.
