The Bubble:

The story of a little boy who goes out into the snow with his snow suit on - Finding joy in making foot marks on snow, dragging feet to make trails , building snow castles, snow angels, played snow slides. Oh! the joy of simple things and the curiosity of taking a snow ball home! -Merely childhood pleasures those.

Bubble Ink's verdict:

A different Snow book without much of the pretty snowflakes and yet powerful illustrations. We love how the little boy puts a snow ball into his pocket and is upset at not finding it in his pocket and goes off to sleep. He dreams that the sun has melted all the snow but wakes up to still find snow everywhere. Dreamy!

We borrowed ours from Hippocampus Bangalore.

We give it 4 bubbles.

Bubbling's verdict:

Bubbling is usually warm-clothing hater - Post this book , despite summer, demanding her winter jackets. She loved the pages of snow trails!
It is a bubbling-tantalizing-three.
