Life in the snow

Snow Amazing: Cool Facts and Warm Tales
by Jane Drake and Ann Love

Drake and Love present a potpourri of snow-related facts and information that should appeal to kids from grades three to five. They'll learn about snow crystal formation, weather forecasting, avalanches, glaciers, snow bugs, snow mammals, and snow homes. Color pencil drawings and photos are scattered throughout, though more relevant ones would have been preferable. As an example, there aren't enough pictures of birds and animals, and no pictures of snow crystals. 

Snow-themed tales and folklore round out the book.
