The Snow Globe Family by Jane O'Conner & Illus by S D Schindler

This book is so adorable! I happen to have a thing for snow globes, so I am a bit biased, but it is super cute! The reviews on Amazon were mixed, some people saying it was difficult to keep track of which family was which.

Both families are out enjoying the winter!
