Snowflake Bentley

Briggs Martin, Jacqueline, illustrated by Mary Azarian.  1998.  Snowflake Bentley Boston:  Houghton Mifflin Company.  ISBN 3 2104 02470426 6.  Call # jP551.57841 BenM.  Caldecott Medal Winner.snowflake bentley

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.
