Is It Any Good?
FIRST SNOW not only shows what's fun about snow play but also captures the apprehension kids often feel about trying new things -- and how they can be won over once they do. The cute, friendly, fun-loving, and encouraging animal characters wear varied and distinctive pastel outfits that add interest on every page.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
