As with all of Zommer’s gorgeously illustrated titles, wintery treat A Thing Called Snow,’ focuses on the beauty of nature and encourages readers to discover the wonders of the great outdoors.
Fox and Hare have grown up together and become best friends but they have yet to experience snow. When winter comes, they are desperate to jump and leap about in it but don’t quite know what they’re looking for. They head off on an Arctic journey to enlist the help of their friends in tracking down the mysterious snow.
This is the perfect wintery read for armchair explorers and nature lovers. Readers are introduced to terms and caribou alongside geese and bears. It also cleverly picks up the festive themes of friendship and community as the last help and look out for each other as the snow falls.
An enchanting wintery delight just begging to be read aloud. 3+
