James builds a snowman who comes to life and visits with him for one night.
A sturdy board book with flaps that withstand toddler wear and tear. A nice mix of things for the kids to discover and do (count toys, play hide-n-seek, pick colors, see what other families do)
As an activity book, the story doesn't fully track with the original (in the original the snowman melts at the end; there is no ending in this one). The flaps can be too good and totally reset in the holder. Not always easy for the little one to pull.
S/He immediately loved the book, and despite repeated readings, loves to look under all the flaps, not just the ones with the answer.
The story is fairly simple. What makes it fun is engaging the little reader in finding things and watching their reaction when they do!
The simple story is complemented by lots of 'flaps' that allows the reader to participate in the discovery and fun that James and the Snowman share.
An easy, interactive way to share learning about colors, numbers, toys, etc.

Buy. Pop-up books aren't generally found in the library. This would be a good one, though.
