I have tried to tell you the taste and smell of snow
its sound and touch
but words are not enough.
To know snow
you must hold it in your hand
until it is gone...

"What is snow?" Araba, a Ghanaian child, asks her Canadian pen pal. The response unfolds as a letter in poetry, rich in lyricism and in what author Sheree Fitch would call "lipslipperiness." Janet Wilson's glowing pastel illustrations revel in all the sensory experiences, the color, associated with the cold white stuff. Through the asking and the telling, two children reach halfway around the world and touch one another.

"Award-winning oil painter Janet Wilson brings the text to life with brilliantly coloured snapshots of childhood winters." "This book has a cozy, cuddle-on-the-couch quality."
Resource Links - September 1, 2001
"The lyrical text...conjures up nostalgic sensual images of snowflakes." "Most scenes are alive with actionespecially the tobogganers who almost zoom off the page straight into your lap."
