All You Need for a Snowman

is mashed potatoes, green beans (2 whole and one sliced for eyes and buttons), and a piece of carrot!

Who said it's bad to play with your food?

All You Need for a Snowman by Alice Schertle is about a group of children coming together to build snowmen.  We are particularly fond of the very large snowman that requires the reader to turn the book sideways to view it properly.  The watercolor illustrations are perfect for creating the snowy scenes and the simple text is great for young children.


  1. Cute idea. Mashed potatoes sound really good right now!

  2. Cutest snowman ever...and no sugar...way to go momma!

  3. I love this book. Cute snowman!
    Little Wonders' Days

  4. I certainly don't say that. Okay, I do say not to do that at restaurants.........

    I better not show my boys, or they'll be wanting this nonstop :)

  5. I'm pretty sure it was my father who said that - at least it was his voice I heard in my head when I saw your snowman :)

  6. Cute snack! "Don't play with your food" is heard way too often in this house.
