I've seen this book around, but we just acquired Snowflake Bentley for ourselves this week. I used to love snow, but I've become someone who looks outside and says, "Ice is falling from the sky! Don't go anywhere!" I have to say, this little book has renewed a bit of my former admiration for those icy gems, but I still won't drive in it.
We woke up this morning to a bit of flurries, so after making some scones and finally getting dressed, we headed outside with a piece of black felt to see what we could see.
The boys were interested for a bit, James was just thrilled to be outside and kept saying, "Snow! Snow! Snow!", but then they all decided the snow was more fun to make into snowballs, rather than take pictures of the individual flakes. That was my cue to head inside.
