Author Erin Dealey has written a sweet, snowy story of making a magical wish on a simple, little snow globe.
When a snow storm arrives, knocks out the power and keeps everyone indoors, a little girl and her family make the most of their precious time together. They unwind and relax with indoor picnics, soft candlelight and whimsical blanket forts. The adorable little girl makes her snow globe wish while her family sleeps. When morning comes, families, friends and neighbors venture out to play in a white-covered wonderland, and a wish for kindness and peace is imagined.
Claire Shorrock illustrates this delightful book with lots of snowflakes on the outdoor pages and all the warmth and coziness of home on the indoor pages. The muted colors have a very calming effect and her attention to detail is impeccable. The simple holiday trimmings are enough to conjure up all the heartfelt feelings of the Christmas spirit.
Quill says: Snow Globe Wishes warms the heart and the soul with one little girl’s big wish for peace on earth. It’s a great story to read to the children around the Christmas season or any time of year when you want to be reminded of the true spirit of the holidays.
