The warm and cold adventure of Icy the Iceberg delights young readers and inspires them to never give up. In this children’s book, a snowflake transitions from being just a tiny crystal of ice to being a large iceberg. As he goes through the stages of life, Icy realizes that life is a balance between good and bad, happy and sad.
This endearing tale of squirrels teaches children about the life of such amazing creatures in a fun and entertaining way. This narrative of Squirelly’s life starts from the very moment he was born, under his mother’s care, all the way to the time he meets the love of his life, Starlett, and starts a family of his own.
Once upon a time in Vancouver, Canada, the sun began heating the waters. The water started to evaporate. The water turned into vapor. This vapor formed molecules. Into the air the molecules rose. Higher and higher they went. They became colder and colder.
At first the particles turned into water, then the water became snow and Icy was born!
On a cool spring day a baby boy squirrel was born in the top of a very tall oak tree. After this squirrel entered the world, he was joined by three sisters and one brother.
Because they had little hair, the babies huddled together to preserve their body heat. They were so cute, but oh so helpless. The mother and father had to do everything for them. The mother nursed them to supply them with nourishment. Both the mother and father had to take turns leaving the nest to eat.
“In this debut picture book, a snowflake experiences his life cycle of forming, falling, melting, and materializing again. A simple tale that shows kids how water becomes snowflakes, then ice.”
“Great children’s book! The story line is so cute, and the illustrations are wonderful!”
—Paul D. Coluccio, Amazon customer
“My daughter loved the book. It helped explain formation of snow and concept of evaporation and condensation in very simple and fun way. She loved the drawings too. Highly recommend it.”
“It is so important to teach children at a young age that animals are precious and can feel, both physically and emotionally. This knowledge brings about respect for wildlife, especially when the child is able to emote and relate to what the animal is going through. I enjoyed Squirrelly the Squirrel and Starlett immensely and believe it would do well to be stocked in both city and school libraries . . . as well as my own.”
—Rosie Malezer, Goodreads reviewer
