Today's read... I'm a Little Snowman by Hannah Eliot

Today's read is all about snow. I found the trio on the front cover quite original and, definitely, friendly. The snowflakes had me dreaming of a winter landscape...which we probably won't see for the holidays in our neck of the woods. But I can still dream.

This one is for the youngest readers out there and is already out in the world.

This winter-themed twist on the classic “I’m A Little Teapot” is sure to be a hit with little readers!

I’m a little snowpal,
head to toes.
Here are my buttons,
here is my nose.

With adorable snowpeople and animal characters, this snowy story is perfect for parents and young ones alike!



Cheerful vibes ring with a snowy landscape as this snow-made bunch puts a new twist on a long-enjoyed, children's song.

This is a small board book for the youngest readers. It is sturdy enough to handle bumps and drops, and the pages can be wiped free of lighter dirt and grime. Snowmen meet the ever-favored song, 'I'm A Little Teapot', and add a winter twist to the lines and verses. There are, usually, two four-lined phrases for each 2-page spread, fitting to one go through the song every time. The wording and time fits well most of the time, but once or twice does stumble a the reader might want to sing through this by themselves first before reading it aloud to make sure they've got the rhythm down. Singing it is fun and does put a smile on the face.

The illustrations are wintery and joyful. They included outdoor scenes with forests, snowflakes, and familiar animals. The snow friends appear to be singing themselves the entire way through, which adds just the right brightness and atmosphere.

It's a cute book, which is sure to bring smiles. And I do see this one as getting that phrase 'again' more than a few times because....well, it's fun to sing along with this group.

And here they are...
