After breakfast Allie looks around for something to do. She notices something icy on the family room window. She never noticed it before. What could it be? Where else will she find it?

Finding Frost Excerpt:

Allie helped her mom and dad clean up the kitchen, after enjoying the food they had made together. Now that breakfast was done, Allie wandered into the family room wondering what to do today. She walked over to her bookshelf. It held so many fantastic stories. Allie touched the books and smiled as she remembered some of her favorites. Maybe later, Allie thought. She liked to read her books after dinner. She loved listening to her mom and dad read to her as she snuggled under her comfy blanket. Yes, she would definitely ask her parents for a story, later. Allie stepped over to the window to look outside.

 

Snowflakes drifted slowly down to the ground, occasionally tickled off course by a winter breeze. They swirled and twirled before floating downward once more. Allie moved the curtains to the side so she could watch the graceful snow. As she did, she noticed something in the corners of the window. The corners of the glass seemed foggy. Allie looked even closer and discovered little snowflakes glued to the window. As she watched, little snowflakes formed where her breath had met the glass. Allie stepped back. From there, the pattern of tiny flakes looked like delicate flowers. She gently touched an icy petal on the window. The little snowflakes melted underneath the warmth of her finger.

 

“Mom?” Allie asked, “What is this on the window?”
