What a wonderful book you've authored.
You've woven together a lovely story and images perfect for young children, but with excellent and thoughtful accompanying text and link for adults to explore the very serious side of climate change further in a very apolitical nonthreatening way. Brava. You know, while reading Snow Starts With Me I was reminded of Jack Keats The Snowy Day and was instantly transported back about 8 or 9 years ago when I read his book to my children. -- NOAA Education Specialist
