Snowballs

Pull on your mittens and head outside for a snowball day. Grab some snow and start rolling. With a few found objects–like buttons and fabric and seeds–and a little imagination, you can create a whole family out of snow. Children will love poring over Lois Ehlert’s bold, funny illustrations and identifying the common (and not so common) objects she uses to decorate her snowy family.

Our Review Panel says...

From the creator of the very popular Leafman, this is a wintery picture book with clever collage-style illustrations made from everyday objects. With a little imagination, whole worlds can be created out of snow by adding a few everyday objects. Children will love spotting the individual items that make up the pictures in Snowballs and we think this book is great inspiration for getting creative with your own snow characters.
