Barra and the book of snow
This is Barra Best. He is our BBC weather man and I love his name. He did warn us, Jo. He did say that those who were hoping for another white Christmas would be disappointed.But we still are. One of us cries if the word itself is mentioned. Now, don't feel the need to burst our snowball. I believe that nothing divides us like snow. Not politics, gender, class or even our opinion of Cath Kidston. It's just that, in the immortal words of our Mick Inkpen, "Kipper was very positive about snow."
So instead of Amazoning times tables and time: the telling of, I am looking at all the lovely books about snow. Some I might even read.
But this one, this one we are reading night by breathtaking night. It's our snow dance. I think the fascinating author would approve...
