The Snow Ghosts

3.79  ·  Rating Details ·  24 Ratings  ·  9 Reviews
Snow ghosts live in the far, far north, a wintry, cold place where it is always snowing. A place where snow ghosts do exercises, catch snowflakes on their tongues, slide on their bellies, and sometimes even turn colors! It is a magical place and on full-moon nights those with enough imagination can see snow ghosts dancing around the big, white moon.

In anticipation of Winter Storm Jonas (we got 3-5", mostly sleet, and you ?), my husband stocked up at the grocery store (two days in advance, so they would actually have milk and bread) and I took the girls to stock up at the library. Priorities, I understand mine.

Accordingly, I checked out a slew of picture books, of which most pictured snow on the cover. The girls didn't condescend to look at them, but I had fun. And it got me out of watching Monsters University which I didn't love. I did lov

The kids liked this. I wasn't as much of a fan, but it was alright. I won't go out of my way to read it again.

Wouldn't read it again or with my class. Just kind of a plain story with not too many great themes in it. Never really captures me and brings me in. Some basic concepts could be used for this book, but definitely not a book I will think of in the future for my classroom.

I can't say too much about this one - it was okay, but very strange. I'd probably give it two stars, but our girls really liked it, so I settled for three. Cute illustrations, but a very odd narrative.

Clever, cute ghosts play in the snow of the far, far north. I only wish the pictures were larger so I could share this during storytime!

This book was about activities to do in the winter in the snow. I don't understand why ghosts were used.

I wish this book were more widely available, because it is and continues to be one of the cutest, most comforting snow/winter picture books out there!

I read this one today for Ms. Vherl's and Ms. Garcia-Romo's kinder classes and they loved it. Thought it was appropriate for the month of October!! Good story.

Hilarious, although not great for read-alouds. Parents appreciate the humor more than kids.
