Today, on the winter solstice, our book celebrates this special occasion.
Snow Party by Harriet Ziefert is a magical celebration of the shortest day of the year.
The story celebrates folk lore where the falling of snow on the first day of winter brings out all of the snow people - men, women and children - for a party. The snow people bring everything they need for a celebration of the start of winter. They set it up and the magical snowy merriment begins.
The brilliant illustrations by Mark Jones will enthrall your little ones as they imagine this snowy wonderland. The colours are vibrant and really reflect the mood of a winter storm which is gentle and mysterious.
Each page has only one or two lines of text so young readers can enjoy without feeling overwhelmed. Even adults will enjoy the story, the folk legend, and the pictures. This story is ideal for children from four to eight years old and makes a great bedtime favourite in winter months.
