Ice dreams

Twelve kinds of ice

Title: Twelve kinds of ice
By: Ellen Bryan Obed

This beautiful little book will capture the imagination of children and adults who haven’t experienced snowy, icy winters, and will bring back frosty memories to those who have. It starts with the first ice of the season: a sheer layer covering the sheep’s pail, so delicate that it breaks when you touch it. As the cold weather sets in, family members explore frozen streams, skate on glassy ponds, and create their own backyard skating rink. Finally, the last ice of the winter disappears, only to live on in the dreams of the children. Barbara McClintock’s charming illustrations complement the text perfectly.
