All You Need For A Snowman

All You Need for a Snowman. Alice Schertle. Illustrated by Barbara Lavallee. 2002/2019. 28 pages. [Source: Review copy]

First sentence: One small snowflake fluttering down—that’s all you need for a snowman. EXCEPT two more snowflakes...three flakes...four...five...six...seven thousand...eight million more...Billions of snowflakes piled in a mound, pat them and pack them and roll them around into one big ball.

Premise/plot: Do you know what it takes to build a snowman?!?! In this rhythmic poem, little ones learn exactly what is involved in the building of a snowman. At least according to the author Alice Schertle. In truth snowmen like snowflakes can be very unique.

My thoughts: I definitely liked this one. It is a cute wintry read aloud to share with little ones. It was originally published as a picture book in 2002. It is newly published as a board book.
