The beauty of snow and snowflakes… what better topic for the wintry month of January?
This book is about Wilson A. Bentley, the first scientist to photograph snowflakes. He was interested in snowflakes and photography from the time he was a young boy. He was fascinated to discover that he could find no two snowflakes that were exactly the same, yet they all had six sides! The story will captivate young readers, and the topic is intriguing for all ages.
