Top Picks for Kids This Christmas

Snowmen at WorkSnowmen At Work
By Caralyn Buehner and Mark Buehner

Caralyn and Mark Buehner have done it again! Their well-known Snowmen books are a hit with kids and parents. The illustrations alone will convince you, but when you read it with the story, you’ll fall in love as we have.

“Ten years ago, on the publication of Snowmen at Night, we discovered the secret lives of snowmen. While we humans sleep, the snowmen go sledding, play baseball, and drink cocoa. But now it’s revealed that snowmen don’t just play all night–they have jobs to do, just like the parents of human kids. Dentists replace missing coal from snowman smiles while pet store owners help pair snowkids with their very own snowpuppy or snowfish to love. The pizza man delivers frozen pizza, and factory workers make the coolest toys in town.”
