Save the Snow Snake!


Sonder is a snow snake who thinks he’s ready to take on the snow snake tradition of helping kids ski. When Granslither tries to teach Sonder the age-old custom of patience and practice, Sonder harrumphs at the notion. He wants to tackle the task immediately. Will he be prepared?  Sonder the Snow Snake by Annie B. Fox is a charming picture book for children ages four to eight. It’s a perfect read aloud choice for any classroom as the story will engage listeners, evoke laughter and maybe even make kids think about choosing patience with learning.   

The back of the book invites readers to meet Sonder. “He’s fuzzy… cute…curious…and white as a snowflake.” All true! After reading Sonder’s tale, I’d like to own a pet Sonder. His story is packed with the cute-factor—it has gorgeous illustrations, clever text (“slimped : that’s how snakes limp”) and darling characters like Sonder and Grandslither.

Sonder the Snow Snake by Annie B. Fox is available at Amazon (Cerulean Blue, January 2012).  Author/Illustrator Annie B. Fox is donating 5% of the proceeds from the sale of Sonder’s story to educate children on the science of climate change and how they can make a difference.
