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?
Educational Themes:
There is no tangible lesson in this story … only the power of positive thinking and the importance of having (and sharing) dreams.
Reading Level:
2.7
Recommended Age To Read By Yourself:
7 to 9
Recommended Age To Read Together:
4 to 8
Age of child:
Started reading with 4-year-old child.
Purchase Recommendation:
Borrow, at least. This will be fun reading with a cup of cocoa or around the fire.
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.
Big Kid Reaction:
This brings back memories of wishing for snow and no school! The illustrations are wonderful and the story is imaginative.
Pros:

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.

Cons:

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.
