Tis the season...for snow! Science for the seasons is one meaningful way to develop a relationship with the natural world. These resources will cause your children to stand in awe of a Creator God who does all things for His glory and for our good.
Snowflake Bentley by Jacqeline Briggs Martin is a picture book biography of Wilson Bentley. All his life, he saw snowflakes as small miracles. He determined to find a way to capture them on film. Winner of the Caldecott medal, this is also a Five in a Row Vol. 4 title and a treasure.
Snowflakes in Photographs by W.A. Bentley - This wonderful book includes Mr. Bentley's photographs of snowflakes taken during a 50 year period. Remarkable considering these were made over 100 years ago!
I usually don't recommend modern books, but this is worthy of an exception. The Secret Life of a Snowflake by Kenneth Libbrect also includes breathtaking photographs of snowflakes along with the science behind them.
After immersing yourselves in these books, your snowball fights will never be the same.
