The focus of this board book is the wonderful nature photos. Snowflake-dusted birds, squirrels, and a deer all acquaint themselves with snowmen to share a snack. The pictures will capture the attention of babies and toddlers, and the verse is short and sweet. A simple and beautiful little book.

This is a board book and the shortened dialoge from "Stranger in the Woods" by the same author/photographer. The pictures are real photographs of wildlife and are beautiful. This is a nice change from other snowmen books. I would recommend any books by this author.

Unlike many babies' book today, this book consists of real photographs of a variety of animals. These happen to be in a snow setting. With few words and beautiful pictures, a baby will get a good introduction to the world of winter nature, where the snowman will share his gifts of seeds and carrots. It is a board book, so it is safe to read and then hand to the baby. The pictures are taken from, without the longer story, the book by these authors, Stranger in the Woods. The birds and squirrels will likely look just like the ones the baby can see in his own backyard, and who doesn't love a beautiful deer? If you live with no snow, you get a good demonstration of what a snowman is. A delightful book all around!

I got this for my 9 month old daughter, and she loves the photographs. I want to expose her to "real" nature; not just drawings or silly sketches of animals. The book is endearing and we both just love it. I am going to order the other books by the same photographic team as well as the DVD's, and I'm sure we will love those, too.

My small kids (4 and 2) love this book. They really like looking at the pictures of animals outside in winter. Last Christmas this book inspired me to re-use old or unmatched mittens and hats for a Snow Man kit. I wrapped them up and bought some carrots and bird seed so the kids to could feed the animals just like in the book. They loved looking out the window to see if anyone had come to eat the seeds/carrots we left on our snowman!

Format: Hardcover
This is the third of three board books by Carl Sams and Jean Stoick. It is meant for children ages 2 to 5 and is a condensed version of Stranger in the Woods, by the same authors. The photography catches birds and small animals as they interact with the snow man who is decorated with food for them. Deer and squirrels and other photographs tell the child about leaving food out for them. In this case, the snowman is his own buffet. The authors have a genius for capturing all of the diners who feed there.

The illustrations in this book are so beautiful and I love the idea of babies seeing that kind of beauty.
