When I was teaching, I always dedicated a week to teaching all about snowmen. Kids LOVE them so why not tap into that love when teaching?! The magic and wonder of a snowman comes even more alive through these amazing snowman books. Here are my 12 favorite snowman books. I hope you can find a few to add to your collection!
