Sammy Snowman

Here's another "Create and Color" activity sheet. Help Sammy Snowman by coloring his picture. Be sure to ask your children questions about what they think is in the box. (Is it for a boy or girl? Is it light or heavy? Does it make noise or play music?) Encourage your children to add background to the picture, like houses, trees, cars, clouds or people.

Something New in 2013

Nonna and Me is currently working on something special for our early readers. We are developing a series of "Listen and Read" books that will be a part of a subscription-based addition to our blog. "Hooray, Hooray! It's a Sunny Day" is the first book that we are working on. We're not quite finished with the final version (still tweeking visuals and sounds), but I wanted to post it on the blog today to give you a sample of what we hope to start offering in 2013.

As usual, I would love to hear from you about this, or any other of our educational products. Enjoy!
