Do You Want to Build a Snowman?

Snowmen and snowflakes were the topic of this week's Storytime. In Perfect Soup by Lisa Moser, Murray (who was in a hurry) went to great lengths to find a carrot he needed for his soup. Snowbaby's parents tried everything to help him sleep in Snowbaby Could Not Sleep by Kara LaReau. No Two Alike by Keith Baker followed a pair of birds on a snowflake-filled journey through a gorgeous winter landscape as they compared things that looked similar. And the rhyming book In the Flaky Frosty Morning by Karla Kuskin was about a snowman built by some kids and how others added to it. We sure say lots of endpapers with snowflakes!

We used felt circles and colored paper to make snowmen with real buttons and "carrot" noses. Then we painted them into snowy, wintery scenes using Q-tips! Just like snowflakes, no two were alike!
