In the Snow Show, Snow White, Chef Kelvin, and Jack Frost are live with a studio audience going to the North Pole to make a fresh batch of snow. The chefs talk about the ingredients needed to make snow, the instructions for making snow, and the types of snow that can be made. One of the chefs even goes through the process himself to show what is happening at each step of the journey to make snow.

In this book, readers will learn about how snow is made in an entertaining way. The process is written in big, fun letters and dialogue boxes around the page show what the characters are saying during the story to add some humor to the scientific facts. There is an afterward at the end by the author with more information about how snow is made, but the contents of the story itself are likely more than enough for most readers. The idea behind the book is fun, but the illustrations can sometimes be too chaotic and makes the book harder to understand along with understanding new science concepts.
