    " From the time he was a small boy, Wilson Bentley saw snowflakes as small miracles. And he determined that one day his camera would capture for others the wonder of the tiny crystal. Bentley's enthusiasm for photographing snowflakes was often misunderstood in his time, but his patience and determination revealed two important truths: no two snowflakes are alike; and each one is startlingly beautiful. "

    " Snowflake Bentley is a children's book about WIlson Bentley, the first known photographer of snowflakes. In 299, it won the Caldecott award for its beautifully detailed illustrations. This book tells the story of the young farm boy and his love and fascination for the snow. It is a unique children's story being historically accurate. "

    " This is a cute story of a boy who loves snowflakes. This is a good lesson for kids in showing them that if that want something bad enough and stick with it there is no limit on the things you can do. The pictures in this books as well as the picture of the actual snowflakes he took are amazing. "

    " Snowflake Bentley is about a man who finds he has an interest in snowflakes. When Bentley was given a camera, it changed his world. He was able to take a picture of the snowflakes that way he could show the world and the flakes wouldn't melt away too fast. Bentley comes up with the conclusion that no two snowflakes are the same. The illustrations in this book are outstanding. Seeing the snowflakes made me become more interested and after I put the book down I wanted to go and research more about Snowflake Bentley and snowflakes in general. This is another book that I would like to use in my classroom. From the text, there are many discussions that could follow so I would like to use this book as a read aloud in my classroom. It will be perfect. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Season Neal | 1/13/2014

    " A non-fiction account of the life of William Bentley. Bentley is an interesting man who spends his lifetime taking wonderful pictures and trying to snap a just right picture of a snowflake. This book would be great for discussing perseverance. "

    " Great true story about a man who saw art in nature. It's not the best book for reading aloud to children, but still a fascinating story with amazing wood cut illustrations. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kirei | 12/12/2013

    " This is the rather dry, slightly depressing story of a man who took photographs of snowflakes. It got the Caldecott Medal, though, so I guess I don't know nuthin'! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel | 12/9/2013

    " Beautiful book and story of a man who held his belief in the magic of snowflakes. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Renée Lyons | 11/24/2013

    " This book was a delight! Learning how the fragile beauty of snowflakes were captured in the early days of photography was fascinating. I would recommend a visit to the website from the museum in Jericho to view the photos taken by Mr. Bentley. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joy | 11/10/2013

    " I thought the story was lovely. The art was soft and snowy (appropriately). I do wish they would have included his actual photographs. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Samantha Weatherford | 7/14/2013

    " this book is good to teach children to pursue their dreams. the man does, and he becomes famous for it. it also is a good way to teach about a famous person, as it is a biography format. also can teach about the camera and weather from the story. 2-5 grade "

    " This book was great! i loved how motivational it is and how the pictures capture a single snowflake! A great inspiration for children to follow what they love and they can do anythiung. "

    " the pictures are phenomenal "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Samantha | 4/4/2013

    " The life and process of the man known for photographing snowflakes. A few of Bentley's photos appear on the last page. Information about Bentley appears in sidebars beside the story and illustrations. Ovaerall, intriguing and satisfying. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tricia | 3/25/2013

    " We grow up hearing that no two snowflakes are alike but rarely do we learn about Wilson Bentley, a farmer-scientist and photographer of myriads of snowflakes. This Caldecott winner is beautifully woodcut illustrated...perfect for this rustic book about an intriguing figure. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lydia Moses | 3/7/2013

    " This is a good informational book and historical book because it has a story, but it also has facts about Bentley. "
