Suzie Snowflake by Crystaline Rose is a poetic story for children about a snowflake who is afraid to be different. Suzie Snowflake struggles daily because she has what she thought was a flaw. Her mother explains to her that it is not a flaw; she has her own unique design. I chose to read Suzie Snowflake with my 4-year-old daughter. We both enjoyed the story. The message in the story is a good one. It is all right to be different because that is what makes you unique. I think that a lot of people can relate to Suzie Snowflake and her insecurities. The wording in the book was a little difficult for my child to read by herself. That is why I will recommend this book for ages 6 and up.
The illustrations in the book were absolutely beautiful. I would never have imagined a snowflake to look like that. My daughter especially liked the rainbows. She spent over an hour staring at them. I really liked that Rose included information on how a snowflake is formed at the end of the book. At the back of the book there is also a snowflake that your child can color.
Overall, I think this is a great book for children. The message is something that everyone, including adults, needs to hear. There isn't a single person in this world who is not insecure about something in themselves. This book reminds people that it is okay to look different. This is the type of book that belongs in schools.
