I have my fingers and toes crossed that this year we have snow. Here in the UK we haven’t had a decent amount of snow since Adam was 8 months old.

Since then I have bought a sledge and it has been sitting in the garage waiting in anticipation. To get Adam in the mood for snow we have been reading snowflake related books. Here are five of our favourite snowflake books for preschoolers.
This story focuses on new beginnings and making friends. When Mia goes to live with her Grandma she feels very different from the new children. As she watches the snow falling Mia realises that each snowflake is unique and perfect in their own way – just like her. UK readers will know its author as CBeebies presenter Cerrie Burnell . Cerrie was born with a right arm that ends just below the elbow and is one of the few visibly disabled presenters on television.
“What we have in common is more important than our differences” is the moral of this story. Snowflake is trying to find a friend who looks just like her. As all snowflakes are unique she is worried that she’ll never find someone exactly like her to be her friend.
Did you know that Wilson A. Bentley, aka the Snowflake Man, was the first person to photograph snowflakes. He discovered that each snowflake was unique. This beautiful pop-up book combines delicate mixed media to explore snowflakes and include information by Wilson A. Bentley.
This heartwarming book teaches young children about friendship and kindness. How does a Robin get its red breast? A friendly Snowman might have the answer. The beautiful illustrations and rhyming verse make it a memorable and engaging story for preschoolers.
After learning about the water cycle in our Little Raindrop Storytelling Basket I was pleased to discover The Snowflake. It takes a complex topic and simplifies it for young readers. The story follows the path of one snowflake throughout twelve months from earth to cloud and back again. The pastel illustrations bring the story to life.
