It's Christmas Eve and people are snug in their beds, but something is stirring outside. The snowmen are preparing to celebrate! Under the glow of moonlight, all the snow families are slipping away to gather in the town square for a night of caroling, dancing, and an exciting visit from the snowman Santa Claus.
This bestselling companion to Snowmen at Night and Snowmen All Year is perfect for little ones, especially now that it's available in a festive board book edition.
The roly-poly, free-spirited stars (and excellent sledders) of Snowmen at Night are back, this time to celebrate Christmas, snowman style. Tree trimming, carols and ice cream are all part of the festive agenda as is a visit from "the snowman Kris Kringle." Jazzy rhyming verse keeps a buoyant party beat as Mark Buehner's holiday lights and street lamps twinkle and glow like the real thing. Readers will smile watching these nimble and nattily accessorized snowmen dancing, decorating cookies and playing the fiddle before they settle back into place for Christmas, human style. Seek-and-find images on each page add to the excitement; a boxed set of both books doubles the fun. ( ). Ages 4-up.
