Book Review

Snow books

Finally I get to do a post about snow books as we now have SNOW. If you pop over to our facebook page you get to see a hint of what our explore outdoors post is about this week. But back to the books – today it’s 5 books about snow and snowmen, as always if any take your fancy if you click on the image it will take you straight to Amazon.co.uk where you can purchase the books.

 Our first book is Harry and the Snow King we are great fans of Harry and the Dinosaurs and love this snow themed Harry book – although not featuring the dinosaurs in as great a detail as normal it’s the lovely story of Harry and his making of a snow king and finding out about melting. If you have a Harry and the Dinosaur fan then this is a great read and has lovely familiar characters in it.

 How to build a snowman is a little board book and although J loves to read it and gets a lot out of it which you will be able to see Literacy in Action later in the week, I mainly got this book for T’s benefit as not only is it snow themed, but it’s also textured so great for working on multiple senses and has gorgeous bright and vibrant pictures in it.

Our 3rd book is Snow Friends a lovely book about a little bear that wakes up early from hibernation to find that it’s still winter and decides to build a snowman as a friend – soon he finds other animals that are awake during the winter and they help and play with him and the snowman. We have a board book of this and because the snowman is textured it’s a great book to read with J and with T.

 The smiley snowman is a tale of some friends who build a snowman and have fun playing with him but the next morning he’s sad and the different ways that they try and make the snowman happy again. Our version is a glitter book and although a bit long when reading for T she loves the sparkles on the page (a girl after my own heart) and we talk about the pictures, colours, textures on the pages.

Our last book this week is Elmer in the Snow – we’ve just discovered the Elmer series with J and he loves the colourful elephant. This was such a good book today after we got in from the snow as J was able to see exactly what he had done in the snow, there was snow ball fights, making of snow characters, running and playing in the snow and the realisation that it was COLD!

If you want to find out more about supporting Early Literacy and why we chose 5 books a week then pop on over to The Imagination Tree to read about the theory and how it works.
