Snow

As the day draws to a close, a family prepares for Christmas – decorating the tree, hanging stockings by the fire, putting out a plate of mince pies… Outside, the world turns to white.

‘No breath of wind, No gleam of sun Still the white snow Whirls softly down’

Our Review Panel says...

If you are looking for a means of introducing classic poetry to your class, this book would be an excellent choice. The classic poem ‘Snow’ by Walter de la Mare is presented as an accessible picture book with stunning illustrations. The poem describes a stark wintry landscape broken into by the tune of a robin. What we love about this edition is how the illustrations of the houses behind the frosty snow scene pick up on small details of the poem and expand them to bring to life extra layers of meaning. This text would make a wonderful stimulus for Christmas writing projects across both key stages.
