Snowflakes on Our Tongues

Farmer Pumpernickel has a blissful, peaceful farm with his contented cows, satisfied sheep, pampered piglets, cheerful chickens, and happy horse. All is as it should be. But when winter arrives with its cold weather, something wacky happens when the good farmer isn't looking. As snow starts to fall, the farm animals share their delight in the tasty flakes coming down from the sky. The animals prance, dance, and kick up their hooves and feet in a barnyard revelry. Boisterous rhymes combine with humor-filled artwork to bring this snowy celebration to life. And, as it turns out, the farmer has fun as well. After all, who doesn't like snowflakes on their tongue? Back matter includes animal facts as well as information on the science of snowflakes.
