Look out. Now look up. From the sky one flake falls, then another. And just like that—it's snowing.

In this beautiful book from debut creator Bomi Park, a young girl wakes up to the year's first snowy day. From her initial glimpse out the window to her poignant adventures—rolling a snowman, making snow angels—the girl's quiet quests are ones all young readers will recognize. Simple, muted text and exquisite, evocative art conjure the excitement of a day spent exploring the wonder of snow—and the magic that, sometimes literally, such a day brings. As subtly joyful as asnow day itself, this book will find its home in the hearts of young adventurers everywhere.

Bomi Park lives in Seoul, South Korea. A student of piano, psychology, and architecture, she discovered drawing was a perfect way to communicate love to her family and friends.First Snow is her debut book.
