“A warm, comforting story with a wintry backdrop… A fine selection for teachers requesting picture books on the senses and a natural for reading aloud before the season’s first snowfall.”
Booklist, Starred Review

Ten Ways to Hear Snow

Written by Cathy Camper
Illustrated by Kenard Pak
Published by Penguin Young Readers Group

A snowy day, a trip to Grandma’s, time spent cooking with one another, and space to pause and discover the world around you come together in this perfect book for reading and sharing on a cozy winter day.

One winter morning, Lina wakes up to silence. It’s the sound of snow — the kind that looks soft and glows bright in the winter sun. But as she walks to her grandmother’s house to help make the family recipe for warak enab, she continues to listen.

As Lina walks past snowmen and across icy sidewalks, she discovers ten ways to pay attention to what might have otherwise gone unnoticed.

Look for the Spanish version, Diez Maneras de Escuchar La Nieve.
