Join Mr. Steve at 10 am for story time! With special guest Kevin Tseng, who will be reading his picture book One Snowy Morning!
Two woodland friends spot a mysterious pile of snow decked out with funny objects which they put to use in unintended and highly original ways, proving that things are what you make of them.
One morning, a squirrel and a chipmunk find the oddest things stuck in a giant pile of snow. Readers will recognize a snowman, but the two friends have their own ideas about what they’ve found. The top hat is a tall rowboat; the carrot nose is a rare dragon’s tooth; and the mittens, of course, are fish puppets. The squirrel and the chipmunk wonder what all of these items are doing in a giant pile of snow, but when they take them home they figure out just what to do with them. The tall rowboat makes a perfect table; the rare dragon’s tooth makes a delicious soup; and the fish puppets make amazing hats! They throw a dragon tooth soup party for all their friends, and the next morning they put (almost) everything back, nearly where they found. Readers will still see a snowman, but they’ll also see how the snowman can be so much more. (Penguin Random House)
