Snow, Snow, Snow!: A Christmastime Song

Boynton Bookworks. (Boynton on Board). Sept. 2023. 24p. Board $7.99. ISBN 9781665948364.
Toddler-PreS–This Christmas board book features adorable, silly animals all dressed up and singing about the holiday. A polar bear in sunglasses and a scarf kicks things off with opening lines to what will surely be a new classic: “Oh there is snow, snow, snow. It’s coming down, down, down, and it is fall, fall, falling all around, round, round./ And you can tell, tell, tell what’s on its way-ee-yay./ Yes! It will soon, soon, soon be Christmas Day!” As the song continues in amusing fashion, more of Boynton’s lovable characters join, including a penguin, moose, reindeer, and, of course, a pig. All except the penguin (who occasionally provides musical accompaniment and encouragement) sing along and decorate a tree together, before going sledding and continuing their song in the snow. Kids will enjoy the bright, happy, cartoon-style illustrations and the rhythms of the song, which caregivers will simply have to sing when reading aloud. An animation of the song will be available on Boynton’s YouTube channel.
VERDICT A great addition to collections in which board books and Sandra Boynton are popular.
