See all posts Get your motors running: It always seems that January is a fun-filled month with The Jens. All of the holiday craziness is over!
If I get my wish you can bet we will be outside building our own snowman in our front yard. The Snowman by Raymond Briggs is a beautiful wordless picture book that I could not find anywhere!
Luckily I remembered there was a video made and YouTube provided a nice backup. The little boy and the snowman explore the little boys house then the snowman takes the little boy to explore his magical world.
My children loved the video. The music that accompanied the beautiful illustrations brought the whole magical story to life. Knowing how the story ends with the snowman melted in the front yard I was anxious to see how my kids would react.
Just the way it is. Snowmen at Night by Caralyn and Mark Buehner I love this book and actually looked for 2 hours in our playroom and storage room convinced I owned it but misplaced it. I finally sat down to read it to my daughter at her school last week.
The story is adorable but a little sophisticated for a 19 month old. The author imagines a world where snowmen come to life and party at night when we are sleeping, which is why they always look a little different in the morning. I love the whimsical illustrations with fun points of view that makes the reader feel like they are in on a real secret.
Competition is not a bad thing but sometimes cooperation is even better, I really like this book.
What finally gives him enough comfort is when his parents make him his very own Snowpuppy to snuggle all night long.
I like gentle books like this because as a child I had terrible nighttime anxiety and as a mom have always been very gentle at bedtime until I knew my kids felt secure enough to handle each new stage of nighttime independence.
My daughter who is 2 loved this book. Mahoney plucked my heartstrings and then some.
When some bullies tease his little sisterhe does what every mother hopes their older child does and stands up for her. Then seeing he needs her he leaves his friends and joins her snowman building efforts.
Also the illustrations of all the different snowmen will make you laughmy favorite is the Elvis snowman! Snowman in Paradise by Michael Roberts is genius. There I said it. I very rarely think that of books.
The book is about a snowman from Manhattan who is glum after Christmas and wants to go on a vacation too. A magical bluebird grants his wish and he flies first class to a tropical islandwith the only rule being he needs to come back in time for Christmas next year.
The rhymes are uniquemy favorite being: Grab it and see why I love it so much! Snow Party by Harriet Ziefert is a magical book that celebrates the biggest holiday for snow people, the winter solstice.
The illustrations are beautiful and the idea of snow people eating and dancing in the middle of the night is delicious! Share it with a friend! Become an Email Subscriber Enter your email address Sign up above and receive all new No Time for Flashcards posts directly in your email inbox.
