Immerse yourself in winter and in the song that snow sings, in Snow Music. The author shows us the world awakening to a blanket of snow, in which only tracks show - of animals, people, cars and trucks. She presents them in verse and in their sounds.

A little boy accidentally lets out the family dog, and he and a friend search for him in the woods. They find him as the snow melts in the sun, and then it snows once more ... 'Swift, and as silent as the shadow of a crow. Clouds crept in and started to snow.'

I especially liked the way the shapes of verses mirrored the tracks they talked about, in a squirrel hopping and children meeting. Snow Music is a delightfully atmospheric picture book, full of the sounds and surroundings of winter snowfall.
