Saturday Storytime: Snowflake Bentley

Amy reads Snowflake Bentley, by Jacqueline Briggs Martin and with illustrations Mary Azarian, published by Houghton Mifflin.

From the time he was a small boy in Vermont, Wilson Bentley saw snowflakes as small miracles. And he determined that one day his camera would capture for others the wonder of the tiny crystal. Bentley’s enthusiasm for photographing snowflakes was often misunderstood in his time, but his patience and determination revealed two important truths: no two snowflakes are alike; and each one is startlingly beautiful.

After the story, learn how to make your own one-of-a-kind snowflake.
