Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
This picture book poses a most ponderable bedtime question: How do snowmen celebrate Christmas? As he lies all snug in his bed, the boy narrator imagines merry snowmen gathering in the town square, hanging sparkling balls of snow on the big Christmas tree. A charming holiday bedtime story. Mark Buehner's radiant paintings can melt hearts, even on the coldest wintry night.
Publishers Weekly
The roly-poly, free-spirited stars (and excellent sledders) of Snowmen at Night are back, this time to celebrate Christmas, snowman style. Tree trimming, carols and ice cream are all part of the festive agenda-as is a visit from "the snowman Kris Kringle." Jazzy rhyming verse keeps a buoyant party beat as Mark Buehner's holiday lights and street lamps twinkle and glow like the real thing. Readers will smile watching these nimble and nattily accessorized snowmen dancing, decorating cookies and playing the fiddle before they settle back into place for Christmas, human style. Seek-and-find images on each page add to the excitement; a boxed set of both books doubles the fun. ($32.99 ISBN 0-8037-3108-6). Ages 4-up. (Sept.) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
The husband-and-wife team who created the popular Snowmen at Night revisits their snowy creations to see how snowmen celebrate Christmas. The rhyming text describes how the snowmen (and snow women, snow children and one snow dog) gather late at night in the empty town for a holiday gathering. They decorate a tree, play games and enjoy icy-cold snacks (snow cones, of course) before the snowman Santa arrives with presents made of snow for all. Carols around the tree conclude the festivities and the snow folk take up their proper posts again just before the sun rises. The illustrations are infused with mysterious blue or lavender light that highlights the rounded figures of the snow people, with lots of additional sparkling effects from the town's Christmas lights and streetlights. The snowmen are quite lively for characters with no legs and twig-thin arms, and they really do seem to have lives of their own that exist on some other icy plane. As in the previous story, there are tiny hidden pictures to search for in each illustration. (Picture book. 4-8)

    MAKES YOU WANT TO BE A KID AGAIN

    This book, as well as Snowmen at Night, is a walk through a world of
    wonder! It catches you up in its imagery and takes you for a sweetly-chilled adventure. It truly makes you wish for a chance to go back and have your mom read it to you. I am so glad I came upon this book and that I've had a chance to pass its magic to my daughter; it will be a book for the generations, and I will search for a copy for my grandchildren someday.

    Creative, fun story and outstanding illustrations!!!

    This has become one of the most loved books in our home. Not only does my 2 1/2 year old daughter love us reading this book to her, but my husband and I also never tire of it. We find ourselves picking it up, looking again and again at the absolutely beautiful illustrations. The most mesmerizing part of the book is looking for the hidden pictures in each illustration. And as you are looking, you have greater appreciation of the detail and beauty on each page of the book. Hats off to both Caralyn and Mark for being such a great team and producing high quality, fun and engaging reading material for both kids AND adults!!! Thank you!

    Beautifully illustrated and warmly written. My three kids love this story and so do I. Seeing the world at night, when everyone is in bed, from the snowmen's perspective. It's fun, inviting, and warms your heart. My five-year-old asked how the snow Santa drank cocoa without melting. I said, it must've been frozen cocoa... like a frappuccino. :)

    My grandchildren loved this book.

    I got this book for my 3 & 5-year-old grandchildren. We have read this book over and over. They absolutely love it. There's nothing like sitting down to read a book about snowmen with your grandchildren by your side and a cup of hot chocolate on a cold winter's night, especially if it's snowing outside.

    Snowmen at Christmas

    This is a wonderful book for children of all ages that have the imagination of what do snowmen actually do before Christmas! The verse and illustrations are excellent. I recommended this book to my friends and after seeing it, they all bought it. Highly recommended for any age. New York Times best seller.

    Snowmen at Christmas

    Did you ever wonder what snowmen do at night? Here is a perfect story how they spend their lives together, get everything ready for Christmas, yet have just enough time to return to their lawns for the holiday. I love this book and the illustrations and can't wait to read it to my grandchildren whether it's Christmas or not.
