      One boy and his dog have faith that the snow will amount to something spectacular, and when individual flakes start to swirl down on the city, they are the only ones who truly know how to enjoy it. Jr Lib Guild.

      "When a young boy sees a single snowflake fall, he rejoices that a major storm is on the way, despite predictions to the contrary. But it is the child who prevails as the 'snowflakes keep coming and coming and coming.' Shulevitz's outstanding illustrations...enrich and extend the brief text." --Starred, School Library Journal

      Snow is a 1998 New York Times Outstanding Book of the Year and a 1999 Caldecott Honor Book.

      "It's snowing, said boy with dog.
      "It's only a snowflake," said grandfather with beard.

      No one thinks one or two snowflakes will amount to anything. Not the man with the hat or the lady with the umbrella. Not even the television or the radio forecasters. But one boy and his dog have faith that the snow will amount to something spectacular, and when flakes start to swirl down on the city, they are also the only ones who know how to truly enjoy it.

      Uri Shulevitz' playful depiction of a snowy day and the transformation of a city is perfectly captured in simple, poetic text and lively watercolor and pen-and-ink illustrations.
