Snowballs

Snowballs Review

Pull on your mittens and head outside with Lois Ehlert for a snowball day! Grab some snow and start rolling. With a few found objects, like buttons and fabric and seeds, and a little imagination, you can create a whole family out of snow. “Ehlert uses collages of cut paper and vibrant, textured objects to dazzling effect in her tribute to building a snowman--and snowgirl and snowcat. Her inventive designs extend the reader’s perspective and tweak the limits of the picture-book format.”--Publishers Weekly

    This book confused me. We started the book off about birds; the question is asked, "Do you think birds know when it's going to snow?" I think it's going to be about feeding birds in the snow, but then...

    I'm afraid Ehlert's books just never really wow me. I love the cover on this and really appreciate her creativity in building the snowpeople/animals in this book, but there really isn't much of a stor...

    We finished up our "OLAF GROWS" -- SNOWMAN story time with this book and I think it might have been the kids' favorite.A family collects stuff to decorate a snow family -- Dad, Mom, Brother, Sister, B...

    I didn't enjoy this at all. I can't stand the illustration style. It's like all these pieces of paper form the images and I've never liked it. Combined with simple, short sentences and this was not wo...

    A family has been waiting for snow for a while now, collecting all kinds of odds and ends for when the big snowfall arrives. And finally - snow, enough snow for all kinds of snowballs. First up is a s...

    Ehlert’s photographic collages are amazing as always, and this book has a ton of rich information on how snow forms, how animals prepare for snow, and different cultures’ winter clothing....

    I admit there is no real plot to grasp the children's attention and simply reading it straight through would have probably bored them to death, but I don't believe that was the purpose of the book or ...

  • Russell

    I'd call the narrative shallow, but it appears to have completely melted away like the snowman family. Some cute folksy art isn't enough to save this book. I'd need coffee beans for eyes too, if I had...

    *Lots* of vertical pages.I like the cut paper and other objects in the illustrations (and I love the weather reports on the back cover). Most of those objects aren't what I would have used to decorate...

  • Brittany

    Just not a fan of this book. The story is boring, the illustrations are boring. Nothing to really like here....
