Ages 9 to 12
Comprehensive youth reference book that covers all aspects of snow: from weather, to snowmen, to glaciers, to winter sports, to animals who live in the snow, to snow plants and bugs . . . and even to global warming! Each topic is treated briefly, often through a narrative involving real people or an actual event. Colourful watercolour illustrations accompany the texts and photographs depict real situations. Legends from around the world add another important aspect to each chapter. The book is organized so themes can be explored separately and an index is offered at the back. A useful glossary explains new terms.
