The Snowflake: Winter's Secret Beauty by Kenneth Libbrecht
The book is a nonfiction book all about snow and the various types of snowflakes. I read the book with rapt attention while the author explained the techniques they used to capture the flakes in order to photograph them and the descriptions of the different types of snowflakes. The best part of the book was the photographs. They are amazing. Take a look at the photos of snowflakes on the NewScientist webpage and you will get a taste for the types of photos that fill this book.
Now it is time to run so I can beat the freezing temperatures home! Happy sledding!
