Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Does the tall and stately snowman so carefully built one day look a little disheveled a day later? "His hat had slipped, his arms drooped down, he really looked a fright—it made me start to wonder: What do snowmen do at night?" When it really gets dark those playful round guys slide to the park. There they enjoy icy-cold cocoa before having races and acting like clowns. The fun continues and the snowmen play baseball with their brooms, have a terrific snowball fight, and take wild rides downhill on sleds. When they are tuckered out, they gather snowman paraphernalia to return home. Vivid and luminescent paintings capture the snowmen in their joyous pursuits. Readers are invited to look for hidden shapes throughout the illustrations. Join the frosty merry-makers in poetic verse and learn why their grins are a little crooked the next morning. Packaged with a plush snowman toy, this book is a rollicking tale to read aloud and savor. 2003 (orig. 2002), Dial Books for Young Readers, Ages 4 to 8.

    Wonderful children's book!

    Adorable rhyming verses and spectacular illustrations make Snowmen At Night a new holiday tradition! The added feature of hidden animal shapes in the illustrations makes this book a challenge for young and old alike.

    A Winter Must Have Book!

    I am a first grade teacher who used this book to teach a writing lesson. My student's each wrote about what they thought snowmen did at night. Then, we read the story and compared and contrasted our writing with the book. My student's loved this book and the illustrations are fabulous! A must have for a winter unit!

    Giggles Galore -- Recently, while overnighting with our 3 1/2 ye

    Giggles Galore -- Recently, while overnighting with our 3 1/2 year old grandson in another town, it snowed. We began helping him build the 'big biggest' snowman but it started to rain. What a disappointmen!. When I saw this book set online, I had to order it for him. (B & N delivered it in 2 days!) He liked the book so much we had to read it several times the day we took it out to him! The first reading was just to read the cute story and look at the sweet illustrations. The subsequent readings were discovery ones - e.g., 'hot' cocoa vs. 'cold' cocoa (what would happen if a snowman drank hot cocoa), how many snowmen on the hill (counting skills), kinds of scarves & hats the snowmen wore (recognizing differences), finding the word 'snowmen' how many times (letter recognition), etc. He discovered something new each time we read the book -- and of course when bedtime came he just had to sleep with his soft (but not cold) snowman. A great book to read to toddlers and for 'beyond toddlers' to read out loud. As he develops his reading skills, I can just see him reading this story to his baby brother who will enjoy it as much as he does now.
