After an early snowfall, some kids build snowmen and dress them up for Halloween. While the kids are away, the snowmen play. Although the snow melts that night, the snowmen were able to leave a Halloween message for the kids.
This is a charming addition to a holiday book collection. This story is quick and simple, making it an easy addition to classroom storytimes. This book also has the potential to ignite conversations or creative writing about what happens to inanimate objects when we aren’t looking.
