"... a well-written and well illustrated book that will appeal to a wide audience, from artist to scientist, nature lover to techno-geek. I give this book my highest recommendation." -- Keith Heidorn, The Weather Doctor
"Along with Rasmussen's photographs, Libbrecht offers a rich and readable synthesis of the physics, mathematics and chemistry that go into making a snow crystal. You'll be sharing some of his gems at the dinner table." -- Star Tribune
"The great thing about reading books is that sometimes you stumble across what can only be described as an unexpected treasure. The Snowflake certainly fits that description." -- Oakland Press
"These color images are stunning examples of the diversity of the crystals. Libbrecht's text is an interesting introduction to complex structures in general and into the mysteries of how snowflakes are made." -- Science News
"With a combination of scientific and poetic ruminations, the author provides an artful blend of appreciation and examination." -- Foreword Magazine
"Along with the magic comes plenty of science. Once I picked up the book, I could not put it down until I read it cover to cover. As I was reading, I felt that lesson plans were practically jumping from the pages. What better way to learn science and apply it to real life!" -- National Science Teachers Association Recommends
"Half encyclopedia, half picture boo, Snowflake appeals to the kid and photographer in you. Writer Kenneth Libbrecht gives an authorative (sic) account of wonders and little-known facts about snowflakes." -- Popular Photography
"Behold the majesty of snowflakes in the gorgeous new book ... up-close and personal photos ..." -- Northshire Bookstore Online
