Look out. Now look up. From the sky one flake falls, then another. And just like that—it's snowing.

In this beautiful book from debut creator Bomi Park, a young girl wakes up to the year's first snowy day. From her initial glimpse out the window to her poignant adventures—rolling a snowman, making snow angels—the girl's quiet quests are ones all young readers will recognize. Simple, muted text and exquisite, evocative art conjure the excitement of a day spent exploring the wonder of snow—and the magic that, sometimes literally, such a day brings. As subtly joyful as a snow day itself, this book will find its home in the hearts of young adventurers everywhere.

A heartwarming debut, that captures the magic of a child's first snow. 

With beautiful illustrations, and a sweet story, readers will love the wonder, and adventure of First Snow. I love the simplicity of the story, and the illustrations. The black and white coloring with little bits of red, make for a timeless feel. Look closely at each of the illustrations, especially within the woodland scenes, because there just may be a few things hidden within the trees. 

We absolutely love this book. It's one I would highly recommend picking up this holiday season! I look forward to reading more of Bomi Park's books. 

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
