The Snowflake Mistake

  • Interest Level: Preschool - Grade 3
  • Reading Level: Grade 2

How are snowflakes made? Find out in this wonderful new tale!

High, very high, almost too high to see, an ice palace floats like a ship on the sea. Where clouds are collected before they float by to make all the snowflakes that fall from the sky.

The Snow Queen is in charge of creating perfect, matching snowflakes that fall from the sky. But when she goes out and leaves Princess Ellie in charge, the snow stops falling and the children below are so disappointed! Princess Ellie has to find a way to make the snow fall again. Princess Ellie sets to work with her scissors to save the day. Does it matter if each snowflake isn’t exactly the same? What will the Snow Queen say when she returns?

A charming rhyming picture book about problem solving and uniqueness. A joy to read with children aged between 3-7, especially in the winter. Includes instructions for children to have a go making their own paper snowflakes.
