Let’s Pretend: The Snowflake

Bracha Rosman

The little snowflake looked down at the white ground below. A group of children were building a huge white snowman. “Oh, goody,” he said to the other snowflakes. “Soon we will flutter down from the clouds and the children will use us in their games too.” The other snowflakes were happy. Winter was so much fun.

The little snowflake looked from his place in the cloud as his friends sparkled in the sunlight and fluttered lower and lower toward the ground.

“Whee!” the snowflakes exclaimed all the way down.

His friends landed near the children and the snowman.

“How lucky for them,” the little snowflake said. “They will surely be part of the snowman now.”

Soon the wind blew again and the little snowflake was happy to see that it was his turn to leave the cloud. “Bye,” he called to the other waiting snowflakes as he jumped out of the cloud.

“Whee!” he exclaimed all the way down. He couldn’t wait to join his friends on the ground. He also wanted to be part of the huge white snowman.

The wind began to blow once more and the little snowflake was lifted into the air and thrown this way and that.

“Oh, no!” he cried. “I’m going the wrong way. The wind is blowing me away from my friends. He closed his eyes, scared to see where he was being blown. The wind blew and blew until the little snowflake flew right over a tree.
