. If you like snowmen you should read this book. I like the book because it is funny! Snowmen at Night by Carly Buehner and the illustrators name is Mark Buehner. The plot is that at night when people are sleeping snowmen play at night. The book is cool because at night they play baseball and they throw snowballs instead of balls. It the best book ever because the pictures look great. You should buy this book. The book is fiction. I give it 5 stars. I recommend this book for kindergarten, 1st grade, and 2nd grade. My friends would like this book and so would you!

When I was little I read this book EVERY SINGLE night before I went to bed. I learned how to read from this book. I thought it was the best book ever. It made me giggle. I am now 13 and I pulled this book out the other day amd sat down and read it. It doesn't make me giggle or struggle over the words, but it made me smile bcuz I used to cuddle with my mom and little sister on the couch every night and read this book to them (of course my mom had to help me I was like 4 or 5). This book used to just be a funny book that I liked but now its the book that taught me how to read and the book that has so much meaning and memories to it! (:

I am a preschool teacher with 3-6 year olds. I used this book in a lesson plan to spark a discussion and their imaginations about what happens when we aren't looking. The kids loved this story and we had a wonderful discussion about it later. I had a snowman project for them and their pictures reflected our discussion. Great for snuggling up and reading with your kids or using in a lesson plan.

I first saw this book at a book fair at the school I work at 6 years ago. The pictures are amazing. I had mentioned it to a friend and was given it as a gift. (My children at the time were in 6th and 7th grade). It is a yearly coffee table book setting. My niece has enjoyed this book every time she came over (more than the other kids in the house). Every time she comes, we have to sit and look through it, she is now 10. This year, I purchased her her own copy to have. Instructions included she never get rid of it and someday share it with her nieces and nephews. To this day, my own college age kids still look at it along with their room mates they bring home. A great book for anyone at any age!

Have you ever wondered what snowmen do at night? This cute picture book answers that question. In addition to the wonderfully, charming pictures, you learn that snowmen love to do some of the same things human children do. They do things such as: sledding, ice skating, snowball fights and many other activities. Maybe that is why when we see a snowman the next morning they look a little disheveled. Now we know why.

Snowmen are not alive, making the genre of this book obviously fantasy. The pictures in this book offer the reader great ideas of what the author is describing that snowmen do at night. Because of the imaginative idea of the story, the illustrator has a very important job of helping the reader understand what is going on. The illustrator did a wonderful job of weaving together imagination and words to create a quality picture book.

This book is a descriptive story about snowmen. It tells about how a young boy builds a snowman and the next day the snowman didn't look the same. The book describes, from a childs point of view, what might cause the snowman to change so rapidly. I love this book because it has a lot of rhyming words and action. It uses alot of descriptive words, which I think are important to bring the reader into the story. I love the colorful, detailed illustrations as well. In the classroom I might use this story as part of a science lesson. We could find out why snowmen change in appearance. I may also use this book when studying fiction and nonfiction books.

This is fun book to read with kids who are very curious. I thought the idea is clever: children will wonder about the snowmen they create and how they begin to change day by day, especially as the temperature rises!

What I like: the entire book. We used to keep this book out only during the winter months, but it is still fun to read all year through. It is about snowmen and what they do at night while we sleep. The rhyming text is fun, and hidden in each picture is a cat, a rabbit, a Santa face, and a Tyrannosaurus Rex. (I still haven't found them all, yet).What I do not like: nothing - I love this book.Recommendation: I would buy this book for my library (medium public library).

When a boy wakes up to find his snowman a little bit droopy, he imagines the night-time adventures that the snowman must have had during the previous night. The boy imagines that the snowman slid into the street to meet his other snowman friends and they had all sorts of little boy-like adventures, including sledding, hot chocolate from snow-moms, etc. The story is told in rhyme, which is sweet, if bordering on cutesy. The pictures are done in soft, rounded pastels and take up the entire page (no white space). While the story is rather adorable in its innocence, it is not terribly exciting or original.Recommended for preschool and elementary school libraries.

Have you ever wondered about the secret life of a snowman? This picture book in verse is a glimpse into what all the snowmen do at night, from drinking hot cocoa, to having snowball fights. The illustrations are a terrific pairing with the rhyming text, and feature hidden elements that children can find if they look carefully! Overall this is a great read-aloud book for winter time, recommended for ages 3-6.

Very cute and clever, why do snowmen look so tuckered and worn in the morning? Because they stay up all night having fun, playing games, doing what snowmen do at night. Silly!

This is a really cute rhyming book about what snowmen actually do at night. They get together, have snowball fights, go sledding, and go ice skating. The illustrations are really cool. At the end of the book, the author reminds you to look back through the illustrations and find the hidden objects listed. So cool!

I love this story so much. It is sure to open kids' minds to new ideas of their favorite winter buddies and what they're up to late at night. The illustrations are beautiful with vibrant colors and lots of detail to keep children's minds colored and occupied.

Have you ever wondered what snowmen do at night? That is the exact question addressed by Caralyn Buehner in her book, Snowmen at Night. The story opens up with a little boy looking at a snowman in the morning and noting that ¿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?¿ What follows is a magical work of fantasy, in which the story and pictures show all of the games snowmen play when they come to life at night. They congregate in the park where there is ¿ice cold cocoa¿ made by ¿snowman mothers.¿ Then the snowmen participate in games that are seen during all seasons, not just winter. They have snowball fights and go sledding, but they also play baseball and have races. It soon becomes clear that snowmen only look disheveled in the morning because of the many activities they have at night.With illustrations by Mark Buehner that practically jump off the page with beauty and vividness, Snowmen at Night is a feast for the eyes as well as the ears with its rhyming prose. The pictures are detailed, with each snowman being distinct¿perhaps none more so than the one that wears a cowboy hat and sheriff¿s badge. The snowmen are also not limited to having identical noses, as some have carrots, while others have cucumbers. The illustrations are drawn to showcase where light hits the snow, with the appropriate sparkle in all the right places. There are also hidden images in the pictures, such as the moon with the face of a snowman. A wonderful seasonal or any-time read for Pre-K through 4th grade, or anyone who is young at heart.
