Snowflakes

Mia has come to live with her Grandma in a land of forests and snow. It isn’t at all like her old life in the city, and at first she feels very different from the new children she sees. But when she watches the snow falling around her one night, Mia realises that she is just like one of the snowflakes – unique and perfect in her own way. A beautiful story about new beginnings and making friends by CBeebies presenter Cerrie Burnell.

Our Review Panel says...

Snowflakes is a topical story about what it is like to immigrate to a completely new home. It tells the story of Mia, a girl who travels away to live with Grandma in a peculiar new land of forests and snow. The narrative conveys Mia’s sense of displacement at her unfamiliar surroundings and how different she feels to the other children there. One day, Mia watches the snow falling and realises that she is unique and special just like each individual snowflake. This is a compassionate story with an important theme of diversity and new beginnings.
