(2 booktalks)

Booktalk #1

Have you ever built a snowman?  It's a lot of fun to do.  Especially on snow days!  Well, have you noticed how they don't look so great the day after you make them?  They look kind of tired and worn out.  What causes that? Do you think that maybe the snowmen are having too much fun during the night when you are asleep?

Booktalk #2

If you have ever built a snowman, you may have noticed that he (or she) didnít quite look the same the following day.   Maybe the hat was tilted, the carrot nose was drooping, or maybe a button or two had dropped off.  What could have caused these changes to take place?  What exactly was your snowman doing all night while you were sleeping? (Teri L. Puryear, South Carolina Book Awards, 2006)
