Now that it appears to be over with the snow (but you never know ...) we like to read stories about snow at snazzie. Especially our toddlers yearn for it and ask regularly when it will snow again, is not it winter now?

Translated into Dutch there are not so many snow-books but in English you find them in abundance. Including the very cute - translated from German into English - mini-booklet The Story of the Snow Children by Sybille Von Olfers. A well-known writer in anthroposophical circles.

The Story of the Snow Children was Sybille Von Olfers debut in 1905. It has beautiful, sweet illustrations in Art Nouveau style. The story reads like a charming old fairy tale written for new children, a quote from a reviewer for a well known English magazine.

Our toddlers at snazzie like the booklet very much, we read it a lot to them during January/February.
