Book Review: S is for Snowman- God's Wintertime Alphabet



Book Description:

“White snowy Angels with wide sweeping wings --- Let’s find the wonders that God’s winter brings.” Children explore the delights of winter from A to Z in this charming softcover edition that celebrates the season’s blessings: from the sparkle of lights to the warmth of a quilt and the scent of fresh-baked cookies. As children review the alphabet, they discover the joy and beauty of wintertime, whether revealed in the bustle of the holidays or the quiet of a snowy walk. S is for Snowman is the latest installment in Ms. Wargin’s alphabet-centered picture book series that includes K is for Kite, F is for Fireflies, and P is for Pumpkin.

My Review:

I sit here on a freezing day... so cold there is a 2 hour school delay.  The East is getting another round of snow and there are cold temps in the south as well!   Some people might not want to get this book since it has been a long winter but maybe I can convince you. 

"S is for Snowman" is a delightful book for young readers learning the alphabet!   There are several Christmas references so this would be a fun book to read in December... or just early winter before you get tired of the winter gear and cold weather or even endless amounts of snow. 

As the book goes through the alphabet it was a joy to try to guess what wintery item could be on the following page with the next letter in the alphabet.   We made many right guesses but also came up with a couple of our own.  :)  

My three and seven year old both enjoyed the story and I plan on sharing it with my Sunday school kids next December!  :)  I would go HERE to get your very own copy for only $6.99.    

Thanks Zondervan for sending me this book free of charge in exchange for an honest review.   I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her
