3 + 4 = 7 snowmen.
5 + 6 = 11 snowmen.
Finally, 100 snowmen!

As you count and add, watch the snowmen enjoy a snowball fight, make funny faces, play hide-and-seek — and just plain have fun.

The fun begins with the addition of two snowmen to one lonely snowman. But they soon multiply into one long equation that will have young readers reaching for a pencil. This is not a story book. It is a counting and math book and would make a great addition to an elementary classroom library, especially kindergarten through third grade. The cartoon illustrations of the snowmen enjoying all sorts of winter recreation are humorous and engaging. “100 Snowmen” is a math-magical way to approach a sno ...more

This book is good for Kindergarten and 1st grade. The book starts off with one snowman alone. Then the author has multiple snowmen doing different acts. Throughout the book the author is adding the snowmen until they reach 100.

This book is great for young children, especially those who are learning how to count. Children may be more involved with math if they think that it is fun and this book is great to use for that. I think this is an amazing source to use as a read aloud and as a math book.

Summary: This book is a story about counting up snowman that are doing different activities. This book is great to not only learn reading but to learn math equations.

Review: This might be the best math book to read aloud. It has fun rhythms as well as math equations. This book would be the perfect tool to teach students on how to count or how to add. The pictures are awesome since each other is the number of snowman preforming an activity.

Class: I would use this book to tea

Cute rhyming book about lots of snowmen.
It counts from 1 to 10 and back to 1.
On each page, it adds 2 consecutive numbers.
1+2 = 3
3+4 = 7
5+6 = 11
7+8 = 15
9+10 = 19
9+8 = 17
7 + 6 = 13
5 + 4 = 9
3 + 2 = 5
1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9+10+9+8+7+6+5+4+3+2+1 = 100

Other than the equations, all numbers are written as number words.

I would have liked it better if we were adding numbers that worked together to make 10.
The last equation might as well be magic because there's been no sense of where the 100 might be coming fro

This book is a fun illustration of early math concepts. While not requiring children to count to 100, they can see what 100 of something looks like, and they can learn different ways of adding and subtracting. It's good practice for those horrible math story problems that are lurking in their future, and it's fun talking about what the silly snowmen are doing in the pictures. The story isn't that engaging, so I recommend it for a time when kids are calm and focused. ...more

Well, we all love snowmen!

Lexi and Victoria are learning how to add, so this seemed a great fit!

Unfortunately, the illustrations are simply not what I hoped!

I know I cannot draw, (not even a stick figure) but these snowmen are just not appealing!

The girls felt that as well; normally, they love all snowmen, but Lexi asked, "Why aren't they like regular snowmen, round and funny and cute???"

Sadly, I had no answer to give her.

Why, indeed?

This book is beautifully illustrated, no matter how small the snowman you can see every detail. Kids ages 6-8 will love this book, but every age will love this cute book. By the way, there is math in here also. Here are a few of the snowman ⛄ pages I liked with math.
5 snowmen sledding down the hill.
6 snowmen never catch a chill
8 more snowmen making a funny face
9 more snowmen like to have a race
I found this book on a Kindle Unlimited website and so can you.

Snowmen, snowmen, snowmen! In this story all about snowmen, we start with one lonely snowman, then two others join him. Under the rhyming text is the equation 1+2=3. As the story progresses, groups of snowmen show up and the reader gets to see what that looks like in math. This continues in a fun way until, amazingly, mysteriously, the equation adds up to 100!

Cleverly written and fun illustrations.

Snowmen fun!

I’m looking forward to read this book to my PreK-3 class as soon as the snow comes this winter! Simple counting and addition concept, but with an unexpected result: a hundred snowmen! Would be a good go to read on the 100th day of school.

I liked the easy application of simple math equations.
This book of math involving counting, adding and summing up the total of all the snowmen as the reader follows the antics, games, activities and fun had by the snowmen.

Perfect for 100th day of school activities. Counting up to ten and down and adding snowmen together to 100.

Great math integration.
A good story, but I kept thinking what child wants to do math in a book like this?!?! Good to teach them math, but it kind of dulls it down a bit in my opinion.

Cute story

Cute story about snowmen that also teaches some addition. Many ways for snowmen to play are included in this story.

I love when books bring something more to the table than just the story itself. 100 Snowmen does just that. It combines a story and math. Does that statement give you nightmares about word problems? Well, this book blends the two painlessly. It is even enjoyable!

This book was one I preordered because, as a former after school librarian I could see it would be one book to read any time for some fun. It is so well written and the artist has won a piece of my heart! Numbers, rhymes and lots of details to appreciate.
I would cheerfully given this a 5+ star rating except for one thing- it was just way too short! So much more could have been added to make me feel like I got my money's q, but therein lies my disappointment. I can't say I wou

This rhyming counting book about snowmen is a lot of fun. The illustrations seem to be rendered in a combination of traditional means and colored digitally.

The rhymes do not offer anything new or creative, and are rather predictable. And honestly, I would prefer to read Snowmen at Night or any in that series over this one. I liked the book, but I feel as though this territory has already been thoroughly canvased by other, and better, titles.

100 Snowmen

This book is illustrated beautifully and perfect for this time of year. I was hoping to use it for a younger child but it is too complicated for them. The book is all in rhyme, which is great, but the concept of having a younger child count seven snowmen and then another six to equal thirteen is too much for them.

This is good for older children and the perfect size to read to them or help them with math.

Recommends it for: pre-school to early elementary and their parents
Recommended to Karen by: librarian
This is a great math book that will grow with the child through the early grades! They can learn to count to 100, but also learn to add. There are never more than 10 snowmen to count at one time, but adding from page to page (addition sentences included in the text) will have then counting to 100 as well as adding to 15 and beyond. A few questions from parents can turn this math book into even more than is on the page!
