A Very Special Snowflake

Scholastic's New Holiday Gem
A Very Special Snowflake

All children love playing in the snow. So do many dogs. But one snowy winter day, when Jeff and Veronica take their new puppy out for a game of catch, Snowflake disappears!

Since her white fur blends right into the many snow drifts around the neighborhood, Snowflake has fun playing hide-and-seek! The baker, the policewoman, the mail carrier, and other neighbors aren't sure they can help. They tell Jeff and Veronica that there are "snowflakes" everywhere! They don't realize Jeff and Veronica are looking for their dog. When Snowflake is found, everyone has a good laugh.

A Very Special Snowflake is written by Don Hoffman. The delightful illustrations by Todd Dakins will have children enjoying their own search for Snowflake! Author Don Hoffman Suggests Some

Fun Things to Do in the Snow

✻ Build a snowman
✻ Make a snow angel
✻ Build a snow fort
✻ Go sledding
✻ Catch some snowflakes on your tongue
✻ Help shovel your walkway and/or driveway
✻ Help shovel a neighbor or elderly friend's
walkway or driveway
✻ Take your dog for a walk in the snow (but keep him on a leash or in a
fenced in area!)

Remember to...

✻ Dress warmly (notice that in A Very Special
Snowflake Jeff and Veronica have on hats, boots,
mittens, scarves, and warm jackets and snow pants)
✻ Wear good boots to keep your feet dry
and warm
✻ Hang up your wet clothes when you come
back in the house
✻ Leave your wet boots where Mom and/or Dad have told you to
leave them

Fun Things to Do
If You Don't LiveWhere There Is Snow
or When You Can't Go Out and Play in the Snow

✻ Make a snowman out of styrofoam and other
craft items (ask for help if you need it)
✻ Draw a picture of what you would like to do in
the snow
✻ Build a cushion fort and use rolled up socks or
"soft" balls for an indoor snow ball fight (make
sure you have adult permission to do this)

✻ Cut fancy snowflakes out of white paper (ask for help if you need it).
Decorate windows with them, or tape them onto a string and
use for holiday decorations
✻ Make cookies that look like snowflakes or snowmen
(this must be done with an adult)
✻ Sing some songs about snow and winter
✻ Read a book about a snowy day (like A Very Special Snowflake)
