Pull on your mittens and head outside with Lois Ehlert for a snowball day! Grab some snow and start rolling. With a few found objects, like buttons and fabric and seeds, and a little imagination, you can create a whole family out of snow. “Ehlert uses collages of cut paper and vibrant, textured objects to dazzling effect in her tribute to building a snowman--and snowgirl and snowcat. Her inventive designs extend the reader’s perspective and tweak the limits of the picture-book format.”--Publishers Weekly

Review: Snowballs

User Review  - Hope L. Justice - Goodreads

I think this one gets a lot of good coattail reviews, because it is an Ehlert book. She does amazing folk imagery, but sometimes, her story lines and poeticism simply fall flat. Read full review

Review: Snowballs

User Review  - Theresa - Goodreads

A family puts together a group of snow people and snow pets. Children will enjoy looking for all the items used to make the snow family. Lois Ehlert's use of different media to create the illustrations is one of the reasons I enjoy her books so much! Read full review
