The Snowman In The Moon

Summary:

Everyone in Woodstream County has been wishing for snow for many, many years. So when two children announce they saw a snowman's face in the moon, no one believes that they will have snow. Will everyone's secret hopes come true?


Reader Enjoyment Factors:

This is a fun book to share (and wish with) all winter. Everyone will enjoy it. The illustrations (painted on canvas) add texture to the story, just like snow.

Content Awareness Factors:

None, really. There are a few pictures with evergreens that resemble Christmas trees. If you're looking for a Christmas book, this is bigger than that.


Little Kid Reaction

S/He loved the snowman face on the moon … and ran to the window to find him outside. We have had several requests to read this book.

This brings back memories of wishing for snow and no school! The illustrations are wonderful and the story is imaginative.

This is a picture book that celebrates winter wishes.

There is no tangible lesson in this story … only the power of positive thinking and the importance of having (and sharing) dreams.
