Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 1–“I love to build a snowman/On freezing winter days./But when the sun is bright and warm/My snowman melts away./There's nothing but a puddle/When my snowman disappears./If only he were magic/And could stay with me all year!” With these words, a gap-toothed boy begins an odyssey with his carrot-nosed friend, teaching him to swim and to fly a kite, visiting the amusement park and the zoo, playing at the beach, watching fireworks, and so on. Caralyn Buehner's rhyming text–only occasionally bumpy–sets the scene nicely, while Mark Buehner paints the scenery in gorgeously luminous oils and acrylics. With changing perspectives, places, and details that show off the illustrator's skill and imagination, every spread explodes with glee. Readers will explore the pictures again and again to take up the trademark challenge: find the hidden creatures in each scene. A celebration of friendship and sheer fun.–Susan Weitz, formerly at Spencer-Van Etten School District, Spencer, NY. (c) Copyright 2010.

I loved Snowmen at Night (2002) and Snowmen at Christmas (2005), the two previous snowmen books by Caralyn (author) and Mark (illustrator) Buehner. They are, quite possibly, the books my grandchildren most often request (after all-time #1 Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, of course) and ones I never tire of reading to them. Because it's been five years since the publication of Snowmen at Christmas I thought we might have seen the last of this series, so I was thrilled to find that the Buehners' had created a new one!

In Snowmen at Night, a young boy, noting how the snowman he built seems differently shaped the morning after being created, imagines the wonderful games snowmen play during the night while humans sleep. Similarly, in Snowmen at Christmas, he imagines how snowmen might celebrate the holiday. The Buehners' again follow this successful idea in Snowmen All Year. This time, though, a child day-dreams about having his snowman with him year-round and imagines all the things they would do together if that were the case. The adventures he plans are simple pleasures - kite flying and swimming, a day at the beach, one at the zoo and another at an amusement park, firefly chasing and camping out under the stars. These are things my grandchildren have done with friends and relatives - even with me! - and I think that commonality will connect them more deeply with the story, helping to make it another favorite.

We have, and love, the two previous Snowmen books (Snowmen at Night and Snowmen at Christmas), and we are currently enjoying this newest, Snowmen All Year, as well -- but if you don't have the opportunity to see the book in person, I wrote this review to say that this book has a very different feel.

A few thoughts:
Illustrations
There is not a single page in any of the books that I wouldn't put up on my wall for decoration. Snowmen are cute in general, but these illustrations take it to a new level (and no, I don't think the book covers even begin to do justice to richness of the illustrations inside). But I do feel like the "Night" and "Christmas" are just a little deeper, more magical, filled with a longing almost akin to an adult reminiscing of his childhood imaginings. In contrast, Snowmen All Year seems to me thoroughly child centric. Which is great -- it's a book for kids! But as an adult looking at the pictures, which are so bright, the color so deeply saturated, it feels more like a typical kid's book (well, if typical kid's books had this quality of illustrations!). Of course, the illustrations fit the story perfectly, but still...5 stars for the illustrations compared to other books out there, but compared to the first two books, I honestly was a little disappointed.

Text
When I first read Snowmen at Night, it nearly brought me to tears -- it so perfectly captures a child's dreaming up why his/her snowman's "grin is crooked, or he's lost a little height..." the next day.

My 3 year old granddaughter loves this book and so do I. The basis of the story deals with what a snowman would do it were made of magic snow and could be around all year. As it moves through each season the pictures are fun, beautiful, and so peaceable to view. There are two little ducks in each picture to find and also a tiny little snowman. Very fun. There are creative cloud silhouettes to discover, also. The story rhymes and is a quick read for those nights when reading time is limited. I highly advocate all the Snowmen books. What Snowmen do at Night is totally delightful and, again, beautifully illustrated. It's my favorite.

Where has this author been all my life? We have just discovered these Snowman books (all the ones we can find in this series!) and we absolutely adore them! The stories are so cute and fun, and the illustrations are REALLY good! They are paintings, and they are absolutely beautiful...truly spectacular...the books are worth owning just for the artwork! The way the painter uses colour is amazing, and the actual scenes painted are so picturesque...also, there is the fun element for my kids of finding the hidden pictures on each page. We love these books and will be recommending them to everyone we know for years to come. I'm planning to bring all of the ones we've purchased with us to my Mother's for Christmas, to read to my 11 nieces and nephews (all aged 9 and under), as I know they will be so popular!

This book, along with the two previous, are absolutely gorgeous and a lot of fun to read! The rhyming is perfect without being annoying and the illustrations are breathing taking and bright. My girls and I love this book because of all the fun things the snowman does during the summer - like a roller coaster, fireworks and camping out! We like Snowmen at Christmas because of the amazing colors! The strings of lights practically come right off the page. And we like Snowmen at Night because it engages the imagination with all the fun things to do in the winter. These are just great books and we couldn't pick a favorite if we had to! (though the scenes in Snowmen All Year are especially spectacular!) Get all three, your kids will love them!
