Snowflake Baby

Snowflake Baby by Elise Borach, 2011 is a lift-the-flap board book perfect for a toddler.

In addition to the cute illustrations and lift-the-flaps, the repetitious use of the word "snow[fill in the blank]" assists the reader into a rhythmic pattern much like that of a little tune.

"Snowflake baby, Winter day
Snowsuit baby, Let's go play
Snow hat baby, Mittens on
Snow boot baby, Oops! It's gone!
Snowbank baby, Climb and slide
Snow fort baby, Peek and hide"

I enjoy reading this book to my little one, and it would make a great Christmas present!
