Description

Young and old alike find snow globes irresistible. It's so tempting to hold these glass domes in your hands, to shake them gently or turn them upside down. They call to mind winter wonderland scenes, favorite childhood toys and most of all, the places we have visited around the world. In Snow All Over the Globe, Shelley Harwayne and her grandson Ben Harwayne pay tribute to these treasured collectibles. By sharing the history and science connected to snow globes, they have enriched the role snow globes play in our lives. Readers will discover what snow globe makers have done to prevent the water in the globe from freezing, how they experimented with different materials to make realistic fake snowflakes, and how they managed to make those snowflakes fall slowly. Additionally, readers will learn about the very first snow globe and the changes in the production of snow globes over the years. Along the way, readers will delight in learning which presidents collected snow globes, when snow globes have popped up in movies and television shows and some of the more surprising uses of snow globes. Salt and pepper shakers, pencil sharpeners, and music boxes are among the many novelty snow globes that have been manufactured. Whether you own dozens of snow globes, just a few or even long to purchase your very first one, this book will make you proud to be an admirer of snow globes.
