The Snow Birthday: A Children's Book About Friendship, Family, and Fun. Kindle Edition
A Children’s Book: The Snow BirthdayThe Snow Birthday is a children's book that combines the magic of winter snow with the drama of a birthday party. It is a kids story about birthdays, about friends, and about family. Our favorite girl finds herself wishing for snow as it gets closer to her birthday and the Christmas Holidays. When the snow finally appears, she works with her family to put together the perfect "snow birthday party." Tag along as the invitations go out, and the party guests enjoy activities and surprises that will delight children of all ages. Read with us as guests and family enjoy winter sports and indoor games.
A Children’s Picture Book About FriendshipThe Snow Birthday is written for early readers age 4-8, but it is more than just a picture book, it is an adventure that they will enjoy reading over and over again. It has just the right mix of pictures and text to help children step into reading. Fun winter activities make up The Snow Birthday celebration. The fun and festivities involve the whole family and end with some surprise special guests.
A Children’s Book About FamilyThis children's book was created as a family project, it portrays good family values and good wholesome activities. When our children were young, we enjoyed our time reading children's stories together with them. Works by Dr. Seuss, Maurice Sendak, and Beatix Potter made frequent visits from the library to our home. Over time, we came to realize that we were indeed "book people", and wanted to share the joy of reading and of children’s stories in particular with others.

What an absolute treat to be exposed to some good old-fashioned family values in this delightful children's book. It demonstrates the collaborative efforts of the entire Dean family...and a big family it is...certainly by today's standards. Mom Brenda, dad Dean, son Nathan as well the other four children in the family have done an excellent job of penning a children's book which clearly focuses on quality fun family time.
The appreciation for fun in the snow...family time revolving around simply playing and staying together...appreciation for grandparents and their visits, all display the value of life's everyday pleasures and time well spent. "The Snow Birthday" further manifests the ability to enjoy this winter season of the year and glean the joyful activities surrounding this snowy and cold climate. Not to be deterred by the weather, the birthday girl has the pleasure of making homemade invitations for her friends. She invites them to an action packed birthday party with sledding and a special surprise birthday cake in the shape of a snowman baked by mom. The presents are secondary while just enjoying the birthday celebration with family and friends takes precedent. Such wonderful values for a family to enjoy and fond memories to be stored away and emulated at another time down the road. The colorful illustrations are wonderful too. Good stuff...I can't wait to share this book with my grandchildren!

Growing Up & Liking It
If you're expecting a highly-polished story with sophisticated illustrations, this isn't that book. It's not pretentious, it's honest. There's no drama, and the story is a breath of fresh air in a complex world. If you long for the "good old days," you'll love this book.
I like this book for many reasons.
- I've known people with winter birthdays close to Christmas. Too often, those birthdays get lost in holiday busyness. So, this book is a nice reminder that every birthday is important. It's also a reminder that the simple things in life can be the most important.
- Because this book is simply illustrated, and tells a very normal (but happy) story, it might encourage other families -- including those with young children -- to create a book as a family activity.
- Don't let the simple illustrations fool you. Little ones will love to make up their own stories about the pictures. There's a lot to work with in several illustrations, and many of the pictures could spark conversations, all by themselves.
This is a book to read to children. The sentences are complex. Most early readers aren't ready for such long sentences. But, once the child has heard the story a couple of times, he (or she) will tell it in his (or her) own words, anyway.
It's not a glitzy, intimidating book. If my children were still little, I'd read this book to them. Then, I'd hand them paper and markers, and suggest that they could write their own books. Using this book as a model, I think they'd be eager to become authors, themselves.
I like that!
When I'm looking for a book both my child and I can enjoy as a bedtime read, I avoid stories that are heavy on the copy (bedtime + too many words = frantic mother). This gentle and satisfying little story is told by a happy child about a happy moment. It's about family, about taking joy in what is simple and basic and pleasant--a nice change from the dark, snarky entertainment of our day, full edge but with little substance to offer. I like a simple, straightforward story, told in a few happy words.
While the description indicates that this is a book for beginning readers, it is most certainly not. The multisyllabic words and complex sentences are not suitable for new readers. But the book offers a good few moments of snuggle-and-read with a parent, and that's the most important thing. And it's nice to know that this family worked together on the project. If more families created together, the world would be a stronger place.
I love the illustrations, and the story line was great for kiddies.
My Grandson only 3 1/2, could relate to this book when I read it to him and showed him the illustrations. (He just loves books!)
He was sad when the snow came and Grandma and Grandpa couldn't come for the birthday due to the snow, laughed when snowflakes were being caught on the tongue, and wanted it to snow so he could play in the snow.
The High fived me when Grandma and Grandpa eventually made it but after the party.
Highs and lows throughout the book, which is good as children can relate.
I highly recommend this book and wish the authors only the best.
