The Snowflake that fell in love with Summer
Nikolas and Eftychia were crazy about snow. Every night, they dreamed of seeing the first flakes fall from the sky. And this is what happened that night! They quickly ran to the kitchen, took a glass jar, captured a snowflake and put it in the fridge! But, you are not supposed to cage what you love…
Will children realize their mistake soon enough? Will they give the snowflake a second chance? And how can a snowflake love the summer? Through an adventure that begins in the winter and ends in the heart of summer, the two siblings prove to us that in life anything is possible and anything can happen. As long as there is patience, faith, respect and love.
Christos Daskalakis, inspired by his own personal experiences, shares with us a tale about all those we once loved and lost. A tale about the importance of personal choice, about love and freedom. A tale about loss, the power of life, and the belief that anything can happen. A lovely tale, teaching for the children, and absolutely moving for us grownups.
*On the last page of the book, look for the hidden seeds, read the instructions and plant them together with the kids. When we learn to respect and care for nature, we also learn to respect ourselves and others (so far, thanks to this action, more than 32,000 seeds have been planted by kids)
*The book was voted by readers of Public bookstores as one of the 10 most popular fairy tales of the year.
