Product Description

Newbery Medalist Patricia MacLachlan and acclaimed picture book creator Steven Kellogg collaborate in a tribute to the community of Sandy Hook, Connecticut.

The people of Sandy Hook adopted the snowflake as a symbol of renewal and hope in the wake of the tragedy in December of 2012. Upon hearing this, children everywhere sent paper snowflakes to the town—thousands of them—sending a message of support and bringing the magic of a winter wonderland to their community. Illustrator Steven Kellogg, who had raised his own family in Sandy Hook, felt compelled to respond through his art, drawing upon his fond and intimate memories to evoke the spirit of the town. His paintings inspired Patricia MacLachlan to write Snowflakes Fall, a gentle, poignant poem that uses snowflakes to celebrate the uniqueness of life, its precious, simple moments, and the strength of memory.

Random House Children's Books together with Random House, Inc. will make a significant monetary donation to child-focused organizations that will be chosen by the collaborators.
