Pull on your mittens and head outside with Lois Ehlert for a snowball day! Grab some snow and start rolling. With a few found objects, like buttons and fabric and seeds, and a little imagination, you can create a whole family out of snow. 'Ehlert uses collages of cut paper and vibrant, textured objects to dazzling effect in her tribute to building a snowman - and snowgirl and snowcat. Her inventive designs extend the reader's perspective and tweak the limits of the picture-book format.' - Publishers Weekly
LOIS EHLERT has created many picture books, including Leaf Man, Pie in the Sky, In My World, Growing Vegetable Soup, Planting a Rainbow, and the bestselling Waiting for Wings. She lives in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

From Our Editors

Every season brings its own joys, but there’s no time of year more fun than the very first snowfall! Snowballs is full of great ideas for making snowmen, snowwomen, snowkids — and even snowpets — by rolling up balls of snow, packing them together, and adding such household goodies as seeds, nuts, raisins and corn. The book even comes with a recipe for making indoor snowmen out of popcorn balls... and neat scientific information about how snow is made, and why it clumps together!
