Toys Meet Snow by Emily Jenkins -- ESSENTIAL
In this picture book companion to the Toys Go Out series, Lumphy, StingRay, and Plastic are left alone while their little girl goes on winter vacation. They don't have time to be bored, though, because it's snowing and the backyard is beckoning...if only they can find a way outside!
Toys Meet Snow is beyond adorable. Lumphy, StingRay, and Plastic have such personality, and their antics and dialogues are very amusing. The illustrations are gorgeous, filled with little details that complement the text perfectly. Although this is a companion to the series, it also stands on its own just fine.
