Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sharon Salluzzo
Ella and Max decide to build a snowman. They begin with one carrot for his nose, and complete the snowman with nine red winterberries for a heart. When it is finished, readers will open to a pop-up snowman that shows all the objects plus ten birds that have landed on it. The illustrations are nicely executed in soft pastel backgrounds and bright, colorful objects, such as the five buttons and the children's winter jackets. The counting concept feels very natural in the simple storyline. The objects are easy to see and count. Young children will need to be observant as they count the eight pebbles (two for eyes and six for his mouth), and the unfinished heart made of nine winterberries (seven on the snowman and two in Ella's hand). Although the pop-up will not hold up for repeated library borrowings, this would be an enjoyable addition for a winter-themed story hour for a small group. It is also a good suggestion for a stocking stuffer or other small gift for a winter holiday. Reviewer: Sharon Salluzzo
