So it was the perfect opportunity to read one of my favorite picture books, SADIE AND THE SNOWMAN by Allen Morgan, and illustrated by BrendaClark.
This book has that perfect combination of rhythmic words and wonderful pictures to tell the story of Sadie’s attempts to her onto her beloved snowman throughout the winter and into the spring.
Children delight in seeing different members of the snowman family being creatively put together with ‘found objects’.
I love this terrifically illustrated rhyming tale that reveals what really happens to snowmen at night.
I asked all interested children to tell me what their snowman would do at night. Some black construction paper, white paint and round sponges, Q-tips, and white chalk were provided. The children set to work creating and writing about their snowmen (my favorite was playing the xylophone!)
