Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Sean Astin

Children Ages 4-6 • 15 min. • Unabridged • © 1999

“Snow in Vermont is as common as snowflakes.” So said all of Wilson Bentley’s neighbors, and they scorned his passion for observing and photographing snow. Yet, with the passage of time, Bentley’s “gift to the world” became crystal clear, and Jericho, Vermont, took pride in the magnificent accomplishments of Snowflake Bentley. This gentle production reflects the gentle man portrayed. Sean Astin’s voice is quiet, calm, and focused as he describes the determination and precision with which Bentley worked winter after winter for a lifetime. Musical snow “falls” lightly in the background. The recording offers options for listening both with and without the book. It’s a credit to the production that both versions flow meaningfully. An additional treasure is artist Mary Azarian’s woodcuts, for which she won a Caldecott Medal. A.R. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 04]
