Well, as you can see, I've got a pretty incredible book about snow and ice to show you all today ~ 'Snowcial' by Chelsea Prince, with amazing photos by Keoki Flagg and Robert Pittman. I was given this book to review and I have to tell you, Julia and I both had a collective jaw drop when it arrived in the mail.
I can't imagine seeing in person what these kids saw! The glaciers, the Gentoo penguins (one of them gets an owie and has some blood on his chest, Julia was worried until we read that it was just little scrape. oh good!), seals, orcas, and the most amazing birds.
It's a really special and snowy book. No....it's SNOWCIAL. Ha ha ha, get it? So sorry. Very very cool, and dense with story, facts and art -- the book is jam packed with gold on every one of its 80 pages! Great for kids ages 7-11 and totally gift worthy.
So thrilled I got to review this book! It's really unique and I can't rave about it enough. Totally incredible first hand glimpse by kids into a world most people will never be able to see in person.
