Counting down to Christmas with a new holiday book each day!
These two snowflake sisters don’t look exactly alike (no two snowflakes do, right?) but they both share an adventurous spirit! In this rhyming story by former Children’s Poet Laureate J.

Whether it’s watching the children outside at play, traveling with Santa as he rides on his sleigh, or romping with a snowman on a cold frosty day (okay, that was MY attempt at a rhyming review!) Desimini’s collage artwork gives a cozy feeling to even the snowiest scenes.
