Just One Flake by Travis Jonker (Abrams, October 2023) is a short and cute picture book featuring one kid who desperately wants to catch a snowflake on his tongue — just one! It’s finally snowing. But catching a snowflake on his tongue turns out to be more difficult than he expected.

My daughter was so excited she could read this one all herself. There are not many words, which is just right for her limited reading abilities. Even more importantly, Just One Flake nicely fits her attention span, wintery/snow interest, and her sensibilities. What kid hasn’t tried to catch a snowflake? The illustrations, done by the author himself, are kid-like and that adds to the charm of this book. Jonker still manages to capture the child’s eyes to reflect his actions and delight in the snow.This is a wonderful book to add to the snowy day books shelf.
