A lovely book about W.A. Bentley, a man who photographed snowflakes. It shows you how something that might appear silly to some can be quite important. And it tells you to just stick with it. For more on W.A. Bentley’s photographs, adults can see http://snowflakebentley.com/
I would categorize this book as both a first information book and a story.
