Snow is a Caldecott Honor book. A little boy counts the snowflakes as they fall. He is the only one that believes it will snow. Will the Snow amount to anything? His grandfather with the beard says, ¿It¿s only a snowflake.¿ The author Uri Schulevitz also illustrated the book. The book is very interesting and would be suitable for grades P-4. The book keeps the reader in suspense wondering if it will come a big snow or not one at all. This book would be a Realistic book because I remember sitting in the window looking out and wishing for snow. This book teaches about being able to stick to what you believe even though no one else believes it. Uri Shulevitz is from Poland. When he was four his family left Poland because of the war. They eventually settled in Paris and then moved to Israel. He then moved to New York and began illustrating books for Hebrew children. Shulevitz, Uri. Snow. New York: Farrar, Straus, Giroux, 1998.

Snow is about a little boy who lives in a very grey, plain village. He travels through his town with his dog trying to tell everyone that it is starting to snow. No one believes that it will snow. As it begins the snow and the town is covered in white all of the statues come to life and dance through the town with the boy and his dog.I wasn¿t a fan of this book. The illustrations towards the end of the book where the statues come to life are interesting. I did not like the way the text was organized.I would use this book in a Kindergarten class as a part of seasons unit

It all begins with one little snowflake. Not much can come of something that small, right? Story follows a little boy with a dog as they see what happens to the city.

This book is about a boy with dog who hopes for snow but everyone around him says it will not snow. After one, two, and even more snow flakes they all say it will not snow.Then it did and the boy and the dog are very happy and dance in the snow. The pictures in this book take an interesting turn when stautes come to life and dance in the snow as well.I did not particularly like this writing style used in this book because it said things like Boy with dog, man with beard, and so on. It also said..."But snow does not listen to TV". It was very oddly worded but the pictures were preatty neat.This would be a book to read at the begining of christmas time to introduce the weather change and also to make snow flakes would be great because everyone loves them.

This is a 1999 Caldecott honor book. This is a story about a boy that sees one snowflake and gets excited about it starting to snow. The town people blow him off because it's only one flake. There was no mention of snow on the radio or television even though there were more snowflakes falling. He kept his excitement up and finally, many snowflakes were falling until the whole town turned white.I chose this book because of the simplicity of words and pictures. As I read this story to my three year old, he would say snow every time I turned the page. I find this book to be very useful for beginning readers because of the repitition throughout the story.I would use this as an extension of a weather lesson. They could see how snow starts out with one flake and then many join in. I would also have the children do a winter collage and tell their story to the class.

As snowflakes slowly come down, one by one, people in the city ignore them, and only a boy and his dog think that the snowfall will amount to anything.

One of my favorite books! Great for children as young as preschool. The story follows the snowflakes as the cover an entire village.

This book was a Caldecott Honor book and is appropriate for children ages 3-7. This book is a realistic book. It is about a little boy who counts the snowflakes as they are falling. He is the only person who believes it will snow. He wonders if the snow will amount to anything. His grandfather says, ¿It¿s only a snowflake¿. This book would keep a child¿s attention. My preschooler loved the book. I believe every child loves to see and read about snow. The author is Uri Shulevitz, who is from Poland. When he was young he and his family had to leave Poland because of the war. During his childhood he also lived for a short time in Paris and then they moved to Israel. He later moved to New York where he began illustrating books. Shulevitz, Uri. Snow. New York: Farrar, Straus, Giroux, 1998.

One gray day, a little boy and his dog were looking out the window and saw one single snow flake. No one thought that it would snow execpt that little boy and his dog. ''It's snowing' said the boy with dog. 'It's only a snowflake' said the grandfather with beard.' In a town of gray will it ever snow? Will it listen to the radio or the television? Will the town ever be white with snow? I guess you will have to read to find out. Uri Shulevitz's 'Snow' is a caldecott award winner for 1998. This book is an enjoyable read for the age level 3-7. It has an important message that no matter what you think, anything can come true, only if you belive it yourself. Shulevitz, Uri. SNOW. New York:Farrar Straus Giroux, 1998.

Snow is a simple picture book with carefully composed illustrations and minimal text. This Caldecott Honor book is written and illustrated by Uri Shulevitz. Shulevitz has illustrated more than twenty award-winning books. He has also taught drawing to college students. Snowflakes begin to fall, but no one pays attention except for a small boy and his dog. First, the little boy encounters his grandfather¿s response. ¿It¿s only a snowflake¿, said his grandfather. More and more snowflakes fall, but no one believes it will amount to anything except for the boy. ¿No snow¿, said the television. This doesn¿t change the boy¿s opinion. After a while, snowflakes continuously fall, and the rooftops are covered. Shulevitz, Uri. Snow. Sunburst, 1998. Reading level: Ages 3-7

No one believed that snow would actually come this small town, but the boy knew. The radio and TV said there would be no snow and so did other members of the town. The boy knew that snow would come soon. Snow was more than just a cold, white blanket. The boy knew snow had talents such as spinning, twirling, and dancing. Throughout the story the boy uses his imagination and wishes for the town to soon see a white mask of snow. Uri Shulevitz does a wonderful job of showing just that with his short,playful lines and colorful and lifelike illustrations. Shulevitz makes any little boy believe that snow will come to any town.......

First one snowflake, then two. When the little boy in this story asks others if it will snow they all say, ¿No.¿ Nobody thinks the snow will amount to anything. ¿It¿s snowing¿ yells the little boy. Suddenly the city is covered in snow and the city is transformed.

A few snowflakes don¿t mean anything, do they? When a few snowflakes fall, nobody believes that anything will come of it, ¿`It¿s only a snowflake,¿ said grandfather with beard.¿ However, a boy and his dog knew otherwise, for ¿all snowflakes know is snow, snow, and snow.¿ The question was, how long would it keep snowing? Snow is a great story for children about what a winter snowfall is like. When the snowflakes begin to fall, one little boy believes that it is snowing, and even though everyone else thinks it is nothing, he still believes otherwise. This book teaches children that if you believe something is true, you shouldn¿t listen to others who tell you that you are wrong, for if you believe, it just might come true. Uri Shulevitz was born in the mid 1930¿s in Poland just before World War II. The war forced his family out of Poland and they settled in Paris, and then in Israel. In Israel, he studied at the Teacher¿s College and the Art Institute in Tel Aviv. Then, in 1959, he moved to New York City and he continued his education at the Brooklyn Museum Art School. He also began to illustrate Hebrew books for children. Eventually, an editor talked him into writing and illustrating his own books, and in 1963, his first book, The Moon in My Room was published. Since then, he has illustrated dozens of award-winning books and taught drawing and design to college students, inspiring a new generation of artists and illustrators. Shulevitz, Uri. Snow. New York: Farrar Straus Giroux, 1998. RL: Ages 3-7, Grades PreK-2
