Snow Sounds: An Onomatopoeic Story
Snow Sounds: An Onomatopoeic Story by David A. Johnson
Sweep, crunch, swoosh, scrape . . .
All night long, snow falls silently, bringing forth a world blanketed in white and a very noisy day. For at dawn’s light, machine, man, and child begin to dig out: first the big highway grader and snowplow, then the smaller town plow, a father’s snow blower, and a boy’s shovel . . . But will the streets get cleared in time?
Spare poetry and elegant watercolor paintings cleverly bring to life this unique story of snow removal and the fun onomatopoeic sounds accompanying it.
"The youngest children will delight in the simplicity and familiarity of the story, while older children will be fascinated by the use of onomatopoeia...A wonderful introduction to the world of poetic language." Kirkus Reviews
This book uses only images and a few "sound words" (Onomatopoeia) to tell the story of a snowstorm. This book is a wonderful way for children to tune in to the sounds around them, and come up with their own sounds.
