When will it start to snow? What causes snow to be white? How can we be sure that no two snowflakes are exactly the same? (Here’s a hint: the evidence can be found in the photographs, which were first taken in the 1890s!) This new title in the Curious About series explores the science behind snow, the history of record-setting blizzards and snowstorms, as well as how people enjoy having fun in the snow. It features full-color photographs, including the famous snowflake photographs Wilson Bentley took at the Smithsonian Institution.
