A cozy, cumulative book to warm a cold winter day
Alive with swirling snow and lots of outdoor fun, the first ten days of winter bring special gifts for a special friend. This cumulative tale will have children chanting along as they discover all the trimmings needed for the most perfect snowman ever!
A riff on the popular holiday song, "The 12 Days of Christmas," this spirited picture book is narrated by a delighted snowman, who receives all sorts of wintry necessities for the first 10 days of winter, beginning on December 21st. Slowly, he is bedecked with a red hat, two lovely blue mittens, three fantastic scarves, and so on. With multimedia artwork in an explosion of color and texture. A 2005 Kirkus Reviews Best Children's Book.
"Teachers and librarians will add this volume to story times with winter or snow themes, and the clever new words to a favorite old tune might become a new winter favorite in music classrooms." 09/15/2005
