Now that the original photographs are being digitized, it’s all the more timely to hear the story behind the snowflake pictures and the passion of Wilson Bentley, who devoted much of his life to capturing these images. From Jericho, Vermont, came the first definitive photographs of individual snowflakes--Wilson Bentley’s “gift to the world.” Tom Stechshulte’s narration mirrors Martin’s storytelling of this gentle man. His quiet, firm voice underscores the delight of young Willie as he observes the natural world and keeps weather records. He voices Willie’s frustration when snowflake preservation proves elusive and celebrates his joy when he works out a method for successful photography. (Mary Azarian won a Caldecott Medal for this book. Her illustrations add to the listening experience.) A.R. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 05]
