Winter can be wonderful and snow can be beautiful but imagine seeing it through the eye of a microscope and captured in a camera. Wilson A. Bentley was fascinated by snowflakes and he went on to study them and to be the first to prove that no two snowflakes are alike. This is a beautifully illustrated biography, 1999 Caldecott medal winner, done in woodcuts. A wonderful story of curiosity and science opening the doors to knowledge and beauty.
