“Snowmen at Halloween encompasses great imagination and breathtaking illustrations that every child will enjoy to read.” – Momma Braga
Have you ever built a snowman and discovered the next day that his grin has gotten a little crooked, or his tree-branch arms have moved? And you’ve wondered…what do snowmen do when we’re not watching?
After a Halloween snowfall, a few children build some snowmen complete with costumes of their own. And when the kids go off to bed, it’s time for the snowmen gather for their own Halloween festivities. There’s candy and apple-bobbing, fortune-telling and trick-or-treating. The next morning, the snowmen are gone…but they’ve left a very special message behind.
Snowmen at Halloween is spooktacular and just in time to gear up for Halloween! We absolutely adored this children’s book. We get a look at what would happen if snowmen where around during Halloween and all the fun activities that they could possibly do. It truly was magical to read to say the least.
The illustrations are breathtaking and the story encompasses great imagination. A great combination for an excellent book to read. This is why we give it 10 snowmens out of 5 and we recommend it for children ages three to seven. We just love Halloween and know that this will be our favorite as we lead into the Halloween season. We also love how there are hidden pictures on every page in this book! Makes it a very fun read as we look for the rabbit, cat and T.Rex. *I failed miserably to locate them but Nikki was able to find them all. 😉
