"After the flowers are gone
Each one a pattern
All its own -
No two the same -
So begins the new picture book by a stellar duo, author Patricia MacLachlan and illustrator Steven Kellogg. If you are still seeking a magical picture book for a project in the coming weeks in PreK-5 dance classes, check out Snowflakes Fall.
Whether you use the actual text as a springboard for a dance project, or simply read the book for the start of a idea, Snowflakes Fall will lead you to some great Winter dancing. The words in the book talk about the actions of snow - falling, drifting, and swirling. The book ends talking about the water cycle - snow melting, streams flowing, evaporating, and raining.
The overarching idea of the book expresses the uniqueness of us all. Even in times of sorrow and loss there is still hope. Snowflakes Fall definitely inspires us to find beauty and to find hope.
