Discover the delights of winter’s first snow with Bunny and his brothers and sisters.
In the cold of early winter, snow begins to fall—at first slowly, melting fast, and then in big flakes, swirling and twirling. Across the glistening meadow, in the magical moonlit night, a small bunny and his brothers and sisters explore the wonders of this newly snow-filled world. Bernette Ford’s lyrical text and Sebastien Braun’s stunning illustrations capture the joy and beauty of the season’s first snowfall.
Praise for the hardcover edition of First Snow:

“Ford’s text has a poetic rhythm that emphasizes the senses . . . The book works well for reading aloud and as a story that beginning readers will be able to tackle independently. . . . Braun’s illustrations . . . are particularly engaging . . . Leave room on your shelves and in your next winter-themed storyhour for First Snow.” —School Library Journal

“Ford and Braun get it just right . . . Ford’s artful text is both fluid and evocative.” —Booklist (starred review)
