The Raggedy Snowman by Mark Kummer- OPTIONAL

Kummer, Mark. The Raggedy Snowman, BOARD BOOK. Flowerpot Press, 2013. $8.99. Some snowmen are fancy and perfectly shaped, but there is one snowman who isn’t. He is bigger on top than he is on the bottom, his mouth is missing some spots, and he’s got socks for gloves. But this snowman knows that it’s not how he looks that is important it is spending time with those he loves and having fun each day. This is a rhyming board book that tries to encourage the message of togetherness and play. The problem is the rhymes are somewhat clunky and even though the illustrations aren’t terrible, they could be better. The book feels longer than it needs to be and the message gets lost in the difficult wording. PRE-K, EL (K-3)- OPTIONAL. Reviewed by Shay, School Librarian
