There is so much we can do in the snow..... sled, ski, throw snowballs, build snow forts, and make snowmen! This month's idea for a story time starter is SNOW!
There are many great books about snow. Here are a few simple, fun books to get you started. The Snowman Shuffle, by Christianne Jones, is an engaging, interactive book where you can "shake and dance and glide" along with characters in the book. Ezra Jack Keats' book, The Snowy Day, is a Caldecott Medal winner! This book has entertained and become of favorite of so many children. Join young Peter as he explores the joy and possibility of a fresh snow fall. Snow Friends by M. Christina Butler is a lovely story of friendship. Join Little Bear as he plays in the snow and makes some friends. Finally, we have The Best Snowman Ever by Stephanie Stahl, which follows Molly Mouse as she tries to build the biggest snowman in the world- but the snowball gets away--read and find out what happens!
Here are some fun rhymes!!
A Chubby Little Snowman
A chubby little snowman
had a carrot nose.
Along came a bunny,
And what do you suppose?
That hungry little bunny
Was looking for his lunch.
He grabbed that snowman's carrot nose...
Nibble, nibble, CRUNCH!
Snow falls on my head. (wiggle fingers on head)
Snow falls on my nose. (wiggle fingers on nose)
Snow falls on my boots. (wiggle fingers on shoes)
But it doesn't touch my toes! (stand and shake head)
Snow falls on my hands (wiggle fingers on top of each hand)
Snow falls on my hair. (wiggly fingers stroke hair)
Snow falls on my shoulders. (wiggle fingers on shoulders)
Snow falls everywhere! (wiggle fingers all through the sir!)
