Summary
No two snowflakes are alike,
almost, almost . . .
but not quite.

Follow a pair of birds on a snowflake-filled journey though a gorgeous winter landscape to explore how everything, everywhere is wonderfully unique--from branches and leaves to forests and trees to friends and loved ones.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* On a snowy day in the country, two little red birds create their own sorts of fun. They make a mound of tiny snowballs, use pine needles as cross-country skis, nibble dry leaves into snowflake shapes, and fly about, using a twig to knock the snow off fence posts. Meanwhile, they notice objects (snowflakes, branches, roads, etc.) around them and observe that each one is different from the others, even the two birds themselves, who look so similar: No two friends, large or small, no two alike . . . among you all! / Are we the same just alike? / Almost, almost . . . but not quite. It is a theme that has been explored in other picture books, but the poetry and pictures here express the idea of individuality with an irrepressible, childlike sense of joy. Accessible to very young children, the verse reads aloud beautifully, with just a phrase or two on each spread. Created with subdued colors and strong composition, the double-page digital illustrations create a powerful sense of place and season while offering details for young children to notice and talk about. Baker's seamless combination of well-worded rhymes, evocative landscapes, and playful protagonists make this a standout title for reading aloud, especially in winter.--Phelan, Carolyn Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "With spare verse and a quiet, winter landscape, Baker (LMNO Peas) presents an ode to uniqueness, particularly as it pertains to nature. His artwork invites readers to observe the world closely, to notice that "No two snowflakes are alike,/ almost, almost.../ but not quite." Two playful red birds are the focal point of each pale spread as they investigate things that are not quite the same: "No two nests,/ so soft and round,/ no two tracks upon the ground./ No two branches, no two leaves,/ no two forests, full of trees." Displaying both mischief and curiosity, the birds ski on fallen pine needles, nibble leaves to make them resemble snowflakes, aim snowballs at a distant fox, knock snow from fence posts, and eventually ask, "Are we the same-just alike?" In answer, the ending illustrations show two red feathers, one tipped in black, rocking in a snowy blue sky: "Almost, almost.../ but not quite." Baker's digital artwork conveys a sense of painterly softness and warmth, and children should appreciate the gentle self-esteem boost that comes with the reassurance that they are one of a kind.
