Snow by P. D. Eastman

An easy reader about the joys of playing in the snow!

This classic Beginner Book edited by Dr. Seuss is a delightful ode to winter. Brrrrr—it snowed! From snowball fights and skiing to fort building and snowman-making, P. D. Eastman and Roy McKie’s Snow will have young readers eager for the kind of fun only a wintry-white day can bring. Perfect for enjoying with a cup of hot cocoa, it makes an ideal gift for the holidays, and happy occasions of all kinds!

Originally created by Dr. Seuss, Beginner Books encourage children to read all by themselves, with simple words and illustrations that give clues to their meaning.

"Joyful verse relates the many ways to enjoy snow. First graders will love it."--Chicago Tribune.

About the Author

P. D. Eastman was an author-illustrator who created many children’s books, including Are You My Mother?Go, Dog. Go!, and The Best Nest. Trained at the National Academy of Design, he enlisted in the army in 1943 and was assigned to the Signal Corps Film Unit—which was headed by Theodor Geisel, who would eventually become known to the world as Dr. Seuss. After Geisel later approached him to write for his new Beginner Book series at Random House, Eastman published his first book, Sam and the Firefly. Since then, Random House has sold more than 30 million books by P. D. Eastman, and he has become one of the most beloved children’s book authors in the world.

Rhyming and memories of the perfect snow day is what this book is all about. It is perfect for my beginner reader. Highly recommended for 5-6yo readers.

I was in first grade when my aunt and uncle purchased this book for me for Christmas. I practiced and practiced and by New Years I could read it all by myself. I was so proud. I would read it everyone and anyone who would listen. I still swell with pride thinking of my great accomplishment. I am now 31 and my husband and I were talking about books to by our little for Christmas. He's still a little too young for this book - but I just can't help myself. I hope he loves it as much as I did.

I have loved this book since I was little, the pictures really capture the feeling of fun winter days playing in the snow. A story that I now read to my kids.
