10 Jolly Snowmen by Annette Rusling and Ned Taylor (Children's, Board book, Picture book, 10E/10E, short 'n' sweet review)

July 2014, Caterpillar Books, 14 pages, Board book, Picture book, Review copy

Content: humour, counting

Summary from Little Tiger Press
Five little snowmen on a winter's day looked at one another and wondered what to play... 

Count the jolly little snowmen in this adventurous rhyming tale, as one by one they skate, slide and slip away! Featuring tactile 3D snowmen, perfect for little hands.

Nayu's thoughts 
I spent a fun time time reading about these cute plastic snowmen disappearing one by by one. It's a fun counting book which I think younger readers in particular will love, because they can touch them, and see them vanish. The snowmen have strong characters, and I kept wondering what happened to the ones who disappeared. The answer comes at the end which made me laugh. 

The book is sturdy and can withstand a lot of love. In some ways it might have been nice to have a softer material used for the snowmen, as sometimes I imagine them to be soft rather than hard, but the hard version works equally well.
