White Snow, Bright Snow


White Snow, Bright Snow by Alvin Tresselt describes in lyrical verse the beauty of a snowfall. The postman can tell it looks like snow, the farmer thinks it smells like snow, and the policeman says it feels like snow. Sure enough, the snow starts to fall, and everyone makes preparations. The world transforms under a blanket of snow, and the children revel in the white, bright world making snowmen and snow forts. Slowly, the snow begins to melt and the spring returns to the world with the appearance of the first robin. Roger Duvoisin’s award-winning illustrations of this book featuring blue half-tones with pops of yellow and red beautifully depict the snow covered town.
