Come explore Mother's Day with award-winning character Snowman Paul in the brilliantly colorful children's picture book, Mother's Day with Snowman Paul by Yossi Lapid. It's time to celebrate Mother's Day again, and who better to celebrate with than our friend, Snowman Paul? Snowman Paul will show us why mothers are unique in their own sort of way. Mommy nourishes us with good food, takes care of us when we are sick, protects us when we are afraid, and gives us love when we need it most. Snowman Paul will even show us how each of us is connected to one another; even to the animal mommies and babies. Then, he will introduce us to his mommy, Mother Earth, explaining how he became a snowman.
Mother's Day with Snowman Paul by Yossi Lapid is a beautifully illustrated children's story about a young boy who is shown what an incredible mother he has, and why Mother's Day is a special day. I loved the story; it is superbly written with a captivating story line. The watercolor illustrations are vivid and engaging, the characters charming, and the text simply lyrical. I appreciated how the author portrayed Mother's Day as a time to celebrate love from and of mothers; distancing ego and highlighting love. Better still, this book is educational, describing the water cycle, and how important the earth is as a planet and as our home. This story is a beautiful tribute to all the mothers of the earth, and even Mother Earth herself.
