Every Saturday, I host a feature called Kid Konnection -- a regular weekend feature about anything related to children's books. This week, I'm going to share with you a delightful picture book that's perfect for the upcoming holiday season!
SNOWMAN'S STORY by Will Hillenbrand is a beautiful picture book that's guaranteed to capture the hearts of young and old readers alike! SNOWMAN'S STORY is a picture book in the truest sense of the word -- there are literally pictures only, no words. And those pictures are gorgeous!
SNOWMAN'S STORY tells (or should I say shows?) the story of a snowman who comes to life after a hat lands on his head. The snowman reads a bedtime story to his animal friends and then falls asleep. A rabbit who was hiding in his hat sneaks out, grabs the book, and hops away. The snowman awakens and sets out after the rabbit. He chases the rabbit through the winter wonderland and eventually discovers a surprise!
SNOWMAN'S STORY is just adorable and I couldn't help but fall for the snowman and his forest friends. The pictures are not only beautiful, but they also convey the entire story. There is no doubt that kids will want to describe the pages and tell their own version of the book. I have a feeling that children will love the chase scenes but also appreciate the sweet ending!
There is a free downloadable game -- Help Snowman Find His Story -- which is a great complement to the book. Just check out this book trailer. You will quickly see how wonderful these illustrations are.
