The Snowman and The Snow Dog
This was one of my favourite stories when I was a little girl it is such an iconic Christmas story. This book is one produced by Puffin books and it is a beautiful pop-up gift edition of the enchanting Snowman and the Snowdog animated film based on the animation for Channel 4.
The book is about A4 paper size the cover is extremely sturdy and the pages are well made so wont tear or rip easily if looked after, the pop up pictures are magical and well-made so if well looked after will work for many years and can be shared with your family.
This book is great for any children around Christmas time I feel if you read it at the right time in the right setting it provides a truly magical Christmas feel to you all.
The story in case you don’t know is about a snowman that comes alive and takes a little boy to meet other snowmen and they have lots of fun at the North Pole and he meets Father Christmas himself before flying back home before morning.
Doesn’t sound very magical the way have written it but when you read it along with pictures and the right imagination it is a fantastic story and one I will be bringing out every year from now on.
The pictures are lovely they are all pastel shades so set a soft tone rather than bright and loud which you would normally see in a children’s book. The words are well written and the story flows extremely well and the word count per page is just right as some of the pictures are quite detailed so the children have plenty of time to explore the picture and what is happening as you read.
I would highly recommend this book for family time snuggled up and as I have said before this definitely a ditch the app for the lap kind of book and you will not be disappointed.
