I'M GOING TO BUILD A SNOWMAN is a sweet wintery picture book read about a young boy who is making his best snowman yet. When he sees it has snowed outside, he is excited to make the most perfect snowman. He knows the steps, and he goes out to make the snowman. While it may not be the perfect snowman he had imagined, it is his best snowman yet, and he is proud of it.

What I loved: This is a simple and cute story that readers can empathize with. The story is told in the first person by the boy who is building the snowman. The story uses images to tell what is happening more than the text, so this will work best for preschool and older picture book readers who can understand the complexities of expressions and images along the way. The images are whimsical, capturing the magic of a snow day and the joy of making a snowman.

The book also includes lots of sound words along the way, which will appeal to young readers. The font is large, clear, and easy to read throughout, making it a good pick for reading aloud. There are great messages about doing your best and pride in your work, even when it might not seem perfect.

Final verdict: I'M GOING TO BUILD A SNOWMAN is a simple and sweet picture book about one boy's quest to create the perfect snowman and his success in trying his best.
