Welcome to Saturday Story Spotlight, my feature where I discuss books my husband and I are reading with our son, Daniel. These are books that he, we, or all of us particularly enjoy.
That’s Not My Snowman by Fiona Watts, illustrated by Rachel Wells
Published by Usborne Books
Hey, that’s not my snowman! His hat is too fuzzy!
And that one’s arms are way too wiggly, definitely not my snowman.
That’s Not My Snowman is one in a series of books from Usborne where the reader is looking for his or her something (snowman, dragon, puppy, etc.). All of the first few pages are somethings that can’t be the reader’s because some attribute or another is wrong, but finally, on the last page, the reader finds his or her something. These books are great for young kids, because they provide a tactile experience (that fuzzy hat really is fuzzy, buttons are corrugated), as well as providing rich vocabulary for those tactile experiences.
Daniel actually slightly preferred That’s Not My Dragon to That’s Not My Snowman, but this whole series is great for young children.
