So I hear that some of you have had a little snow lately!  We haven't yet (though I hear it could happen tonight), but we're sure ready for winter.  We've been reading all kinds of Christmas books lately and the kids are SO excited.  Our pick for book of the week this week is Snowmen At Night by Caralyn Buehner. 

If your kids are anything like mine, they may tend to personify inanimate objects.  My kids get distressed when stuffed animals get 'injured' and they worry about whether their toys need a bath.  So I can only imagine what might happen when children like this see a snowman melting.  Well, Snowmen At Night helps take the sting out of watching an icy friend slowly melt away.  Through lively, colorful pictures and clever wording, this book describes all the exciting winter activities in which snowmen partake that leave them just a little rough around the edges come morning.  My kids loved the idea that snowmen can be so much fun - and they enjoyed the sampling of winter activities that await them as well. 

We give this book a hearty thumbs up and hope that you, too, will enjoy some cozy reading time snuggled under a nice soft blanket this winter!

Found you via the blog hop..
I was one of those kids who freaked out that their toys felt neglected if they weren't at home to play and I would have probably had the same attachment to a snowy friend if I'd ever seen snow in my childhood! Book looks very cute!!
