As we head into winter (at least here on the East Coast) I thought I would suggest one of my favorite books about the fun part of winter: making snowmen!
Snowmen at Night by Caralyn Buehner with pictures by Mark Buehner became an instant classic when it first came out. I immediately knew that it would be wonderful to read aloud and use at story time. I loved the story line of a child wondering why the snowman they made had changed and drooped a bit over night. I love the imaginative explanation that follows from making snowmen angels to skating in the park to snowmen races. I also love how Mark Buehner has hidden little pictures in the scenes to make the book a bit more interactive. This is a book that has been so successful it has spawned a few sequels. It is a must have book for any child's bookshelf.
