    My Book Tie-Ins of the Week:    


    The first day of winter was last month, but I was all caught up in Christmas when winter started and I hadn’t discovered this book. The First Day of Winter by Denise Fleming is a wonderful book with text based on the twelve days of Christmas. Each day a snowman is given something new to decorate him.

    The snowman gets a red hat with a gold button on down to ten peanuts for toes. He is very dapper and well decorated by the time the book is done. The repetitive nature of the text made it easy for JDaniel to jump in and recite the text as I read it. It was fun to sing along with too.  

    Retelling the Story

    We had a great time retelling the story as we assembled all the snowman decorations. The crayons represent things we drew on the snow man using that color.


    We assembled the snowman. Our snowman had some bits and pieces in different locations than the one in the book.

        This was the only snowplow my street saw during the snowstorm.

      JDaniel did a great job on the snowman! With all the snow we have outside, I should do some of these activities w/ my little girls. :) Sharing your post on Twitter and FB.

      I love Denise Fleming books. I haven’t seen that one in particular but it looks like something we would enjoy reading. I love the craft you did along with it as well! Riding that trike in the snow was probably a good workout for him! I bet he was tired and ready for a nap after that.

      I’m going to have to look into that book.
      We also did snowman this week. I actually have four books we were reading.
      Wanted to thank you for the Peek a Book I won, I received it so quickly. The girls really enjoy it and I think it is so cute.
