… with all that snow!
Although we may have already had our few snowfalls of the season here in the valley in western Oregon, January always brings to mind snowflakes: icy, pure white real ones floating down from the sky as well as the larger variety intricately cut from paper.
Snow is a fun topic to learn about this time of year, and Snowflake Bentley by Jacqueline Briggs Martin is a great place to start! This story provides a unique look at snowflakes through the life of Wilson Bentley, a farmer and photographer from Vermont.
Additional information about Bentley can be found at
and for fun, you can also visit the Make-a-Flake website to create your own unique virtual snowflakes.
Happy New Year!
