Snow, Snow: Winter Poems for Children by Jane Yolen

Yolen, Jane. Snow, Snow: Winter Poems for Children. Photographs by Jason Stemple. Honesdale, PA: Wordson/Boyd's Mill Press, 1998.

As you might have guessed from the title, this collection of poetry is all about snow and winter. Yolen's poems are paired with breathtaking photographs of wintry landscapes.

What I thought: In this collection I most enjoyed Yolen's use of imagery. In "Snow on the Trees," she uses painting imagery and numerous similes. In "River in Winter," the snow is fur on the water. A delightful collection!
