Children's Book Review: The First Day of Winter
The First Day of Winter
Written by: Denise Fleming
Published by: Henry Holt and Co., 2005
Alive with swirling snow and lots of outdoor fun, the first ten days of winter bring special gifts for a special friend. This cumulative tale will have children chanting along as they discover all the trimmings needed for the most perfect snowman ever!
* As today was the first "official" day of winter, I felt it was appropriate to read my children this book. We had fun singing the story together to the tune of "The Twelve Days of Christmas" and finding the different items on the snowman. This story can be used to reinforce counting and numbers by having kids count the "9 big black buttons" and so on.
Family Rating: 1 1/2 thumbs up.
