Picture Book Puzzler: Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow

I don't know about you, but I'm ready for some snow! Just like each individual snowflake in a snowstorm is unique, each illustrator here has his or her own unique style of illustrating snow. Can you guess the name of the picture book behind each of these snowstorms? Let us know in the comments below! 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10.

I agree with Meg except I think 9 is The Happy Day by Ruth Krauss and Marc Simont. And I've read Dream Snow quite a bit this season and didn't see those butterflies, I know they're Eric but not sure where they come from...
