This story wouldn’t really grab the attention of the younger readers. There’s no meaning, it gives real life pictures of snow figures and the illustrations are great very creative. Promotes family, when winter comes they build a Dad, mom, boy, girl, cat, and dog from snowballs. And when the snow day is over the sun melts the family away. ( )

Honestly, I wasn't intrigued by this story. I did like how the pages were verticals and the words were big. This book however, would allow the children to "guess" what comes next when they start making each snowman. ( )

Kids usually are so excited to make snowballs and snowmen. Many of the illustrations take up two pages and you have to flip the book to be able to see them. In this book birds are making all the snow people and a squirrel comes to help them out. When the birds are saving things in a bag you think it would be because it is snowing and they need their food. The birds are actually saving all the food up to make the features on the snowman/snow people. Everything they use for the features including forks, seeds, hats ,ribbons ,bells,ties, leaves, and buttons look so realistic. Lois Ehlert uses buttons in a lot of his books for details in the book. Instead of thinking as a snowday as hard for a bird, they make you see it is a day filled with fun and friends. ( )
