First Day of Winter

by Denise Fleming

Published by Henry Holt, 2005
32 pages
ISBN: 0805073841

Ages 3-7

On the first day of winter my best friend gave to me . . . a red cap with a gold snap.” New words to a familiar holiday tune list building materials for a snowman with each stanza: “4 prickly pinecones, 3 striped scarves, 2 bright blue mittens,” and so on. Fleming’s textured illustrations offer varying perspectives of the snowman during all stages of construction, until the snow figure is completed, much to the delight of the brown-skinned child who looks proudly at his creation.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
