In the wonder of winter, do snow boys and girls sometimes run out from their spot and play while the children aren’t watching? Maybe they do. This snowboy is not going to sit around all winter, so he decides to party with his animal friends and a snowgirl. They play in the snowdrifts and visit the hibernating animals. After playing their games, and counting to ten, snowboy makes it home before the children even know that he was missing.
Snowboy 1,2,3 is a counting book for the winter season. The illustrations are dynamic and simple and speak to preschoolers' imaginations. Winter animals are highlighted to make it a learning book, not only for numbers, but also for hibernating and non-hibernating animals. There are many books that count to ten, or that count backwards from ten. This book does both, which makes it a useful teaching tool for number progressions. This is an enjoyable book to bring the magic of the season into your home.
