A Fun SNOWMAN Book !

Snowmen at Night by Caralyn Buehner

First of all, I must say that the illustrations are beautiful in this book!Second of all, the story is so clever! There are even hidden pictures in the snow! Kids will just love it!!

Story: What happens at night with snowmen? Where do they go? What do they do? Well, this story will tell you how the snowmen play at night with their friends and family.

Lesson Ideas:

1. There is a rhyming pattern in this book, so there are a lot of clever ways to have kids listen for or find the rhymes. Have your kids make snowmen on sticks and while reading aloud the story a second time have them raise their snowmen when they hear two words rhyme.

2. This story is so imaginative. Discuss other activities snowmen could do at night. Make a class story and have each child illustrate a page for a class book.

3. Older kidos could write their own snowmen story at night!

4. There is also a lot of cause and effect in this book. Retype the story and cut apart the cause and effect sentences. Have the students put them in the correct category and check their answers with a partner.

Happpy Reading!
