I love reading, and I've tried to instill reading into my daughter's and grandchildren's life. Reading aloud to children helps with vocabulary, literacy and gets them to use their imagination as they're listening to the story and looking at the pictures. Thirty four years later, my daughter is still an avid reader and my 5 year old grandson still loves MaMa to read bedtime stories. We love reading on cold and snowy days too.
When asked to review the children's book, A Flower in the Snow, by Sourcebooks, I was thrilled. In essence, the book is about friendship. Luna and her polar bear friend, Bear, discover a beautiful gold flower growing in the snow. But when the flower fades, Bear goes on a search around the world for another to bring to Luna. It's only when he returns home that the true strength of their friendship is revealed.
The book is hardback and beautifully illustrated with vivid colors. It is appropriate for ages 4 - 8 and has 32 pages. The story teaches children that friendship is more important than things. It also teaches children that it's okay to miss someone and feel sad when they're away. To check out this book and others visit, A Flower in the Snow on the Sourcebooks site. The book is available for $16.99.
