Format: Board book
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.

I bought this book used. It was listed as being in perfect or excellent condition. But when I received it, it had an inscription on the first inside page, in black Sharpie. Otherwise the book is wonderful. It's one of my favorite children's book. I just wish the seller had been more honest about the condition.

This is a board book and is perfect toddlers. I have a two year old and a four year old and they both love this book. We used this book for a tradition in our house called The 24 Books of Christmas. The pictures are absolutely beautiful. We live in Pennsylvania so we see many of these animals in our yard. We are going to build a snowman this year just like the one in the book and see if we can attract some wildlife to it. It's nice to have a book that shows real pictures of wild animals in their natural setting but yet still has a very playful feel to it. I would recommend this book to anyone will small children.

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!
