SNOW by Thelma Harrington Bell


Email this review


From swell stories like Yaller-Eye (1951) and Take It Easy (1953) for this age group, Thelma Bell turns her hand, to a competent essay- explanation on snow, its various forms and their importance for man. Kinds of snow- wet and dry- and snow- flakes-hexagonal, plate, stellar; reading the snow blanket; how snow influences architectural design; making an igloo; the formation of snow in the sky- these are a few of the things to learn about here. Written with ease and a grasp of the facts in relation to each other, this is good nature study reading for 12 year olds too.
