The Smallest Snowflake

Follow your dreams in this heartwarming winter tale!

Every snowflake has a dream. While the other snowflakes boast about their plans to travel to glamorous destinations—the most beautiful mountain or the golden pinnacle on the castle, St. Basil—the smallest snowflake simply longs for someplace special . . . someplace warm. The snowflakes fly over oceans, parting ways over mountains and red roofed farms, until at last, the smallest snowflake finds her home in a small flower box on a window ledge. There she settles down and waits longingly for the first warming ray of sunshine. And when spring arrives with snowdrops and unexpected friendship she knows she has fulfilled her destiny.

A wonderful story about transience and a new beginning.

With the delicacy of embroidery, Watts's ink and watercolor spreads show snowy landscapes around the wintry world: rosy-cheeked women in red scarves hurrying past the domes of St. Basil's Cathedral, Mount Fuji standing against a pink sky swirling with snow, ice-dwellers fishing by igloos and icy peaks.
