Perfect Snow by: Barbara Reid

Perfect Snow
Barbara Reid
ISBN 9780545985772

Winter is my favorite season, and snow is one of my favorite things in the world - even if it means hours of shoveling each day. In this book Barbara Reid captures a child's wonder and fascination with the first snow fall and all that can be done with snow. Snow forts, snow balls, and snowmen are part and parce
l of childhood in Canada, and Reid captures that wonderfully.

This book is also a departure for her in that it includes some sketches and comic-style framed story to supplement her world- famous plasticine art. Her work with plasticine often looks like it is photographs. This book with the predominance of white for the snow is a masterpiece of art. This is another fabulous book by a Canadian author and illustrator and a prime example of why she has won almost every Children's Book award.
