The Snowman is a wordless children's picture book by British author Raymond Briggs, first published in 1978 by Hamish Hamilton in the United Kingdom, and published by Random House in the United States in November of the same year.[1] The book won a number of awards and was adapted into an animated television film in 1982 which is an annual fixture at Christmas.

The book is entirely wordless, and illustrated with only coloured pencils.[2] Briggs said that it was partly inspired by his previous book Fungus the Bogeyman: "For two years I worked on Fungus, buried amongst muck, slime and words, so... I wanted to do something which was clean, pleasant, fresh and wordless and quick."[3]

In a 2012 interview for the Radio Times, Briggs noted "I don't have happy endings. I create what seems natural and inevitable. The snowman melts, my parents died, animals die, flowers die. Everything does. There's nothing particularly gloomy about it. It's a fact of life." He disputed the idea that the book is a Christmas book, noting that it was only the animated adaptation that introduces this element.[4]

In the United Kingdom, it was the runner-up for the Kate Greenaway Medal from the Library Association, recognising the year's best children's book illustration by a British writer.[5][a] In the United States, it was named to the Lewis Carroll Shelf Award list in 1979.

The book was adapted into a half-hour animated television film in 1982, which debuted on Channel 4 in the United Kingdom on 26 December. The Snowman film was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film and has become an annual festive event, inspiring multiple spin-offs including a concert work, stage show,[6] video game[7] and an animated sequel.[8]

My son Harry's OT and ABA therapists are focusing on his manipulation of buttons and zippers, putting on a shirt, and putting on and taking off socks. My son Luke's ABA team is working on him zipping up his own jacket and selecting clothes appropriate for the weather. All of these skills require tons of labeling vocabulary, specific action words, and new language-based concepts. It also requires some social-emotional skill-building. We all have feelings about clothes! Here are 15 great picture books to support these important goals.

This is a brilliant little book. Kids who enjoy labeling colors will be drawn in because the order of the colors changes on each page. And the humor is simply contagious. My son Luke calls this book, "Oops," and he always says it with a huge smile and giggle.

Blue Hat, Green Hat is quite useful when you are working on basic labeling skills for clothes. But fundamentally, you have to have at least an emerging understanding of the function of clothing to get the joke. That's what makes this such a great book for kids who are working on dressing skills at any level.

Twelve Hats for Lena is a months-of-the-year concept book about a little girl who decorates a new fabulous hat for each month to complement the change in seasons or celebrate that month's holidays. The text provides a simple rhyming sentence for each page, displaying the month in larger font. Lena models her latest hat on the facing page. Each creation is colorful, fun, and has lots of elements to label. Karen Katz' illustrations have a wonderful collage sensibility.

There's a strong American and hemispheric point of view to this book; July's hat celebrates the Fourth of July, November's is Thanksgiving themed, and so on. And the seasons being attached to specific months wouldn't make sense in a place like Australia. But there is some universality. For December Lena makes a hat with Hannukah dreidels, Kwanza fruit, and Christmas lights. That December page also folds out to be twice as large, providing an oversized finale.

Dressing for the weather is an important daily living skill. Right now, my son Luke has an ABA goal of sorting his own clothing into weather categories. This is a perfect book to get extra practice working on those skills.

My kids love guessing game picture books! This one is about matching clothing to the kind of job it is worn for. First we see a clothesline with clothes associated with a particular job (along with a few accessories to provide extra clues). When we turn the page, we are told the answer, and we see the worker doing the job in their community. These scenes are often quite busy with lots of details, but the empty white background helps a lot. There is also a welcome diversity of gender and ethnic representations.

Throughout the book we see the first person we meet, a mail carrier, delivering party invitations to all the others: a farmer, a chef, and artist, a carpenter, a firefighter, and finally an astronaut. At the end, the astronaut gets into her rocket and we discover that we are at a launch party!

I adore Denise Fleming's writing, but I always have to warn people that while her artistic style is beautiful, it's also visually busy with soft, undefined edges and bright jewel tones. My son Luke can't attend to her books because of this, while my son Harry stims off them. So YMMV. Also, while I think she is a brilliant writer in general, the last few pages of this particular story didn't work for me. But overall, there is a lot of heart in the scenes between Michael and Maggie in this lovely picture book.

While the middle of the book will be too wordy for some, there is a helpful repetitive structure: some animal arrives and decides to get into the cozy, warm mitten, the other animals decide not to make a fuss, the new animal squeezes in, and the mitten stretches but doesn't break. Each page also has a left and right margin with cut-out art that give us a window into the action in another part of the woods. We are always able to see Nicki playing, and we get a clue about the next animal we will encounter.

This is not the best choice for kids who are easily distracted by lots of little details or who can't attend to a book for at least 5 minutes. But for a child who loves animals, detailed illustrations, and can manage the length, this book will be a hit. My son Harry adores it.

The illustrations throughout the book have an almost tropical palette and are rife with patterning. It's busy, but not too busy for most, thanks to the thoughtful interspersing of solid colors. The artist's perspective is also carefully chosen. We see everything from a low angle, including that the adults are never shown above the shoulders.

This is another great book for exploring the intersection between the social-emotional and clothing. Ella Sarah gets increasingly upset, until she has a full-fledged tantrum, screaming and throwing toys. While a behaviorist might grimace when the story resolves with Ella Sarah getting what she wants, I think the context matters. It's a playdate at her home; it's entirely appropriate for her to choose her dress-up outfit for her own tea party.

The poetry is top-notch, with great rhyme and rhythm to keep kids engaged. I find that picture books with a longer length are most successful when they are poetry collections like this one. It's easier to keep a child's attention when each page has something new to offer.

This is a days-of-the-week concept book that also shows the passing of seasons and illustrates aging. The variety of clothing is great for labeling. As a social-emotional theme, it's nice to see a book deal with the common childhood conflict of having to let go of a favorite piece of clothing that no longer fits. Re-imagining it as something else is a tidy solution that some might want to actually try!

A little boy awakens to a huge snowfall and spends the day making a snowman. At night, he sneaks outside and the snowman is alive! They spend most of the night exploring and having adventures. Eventually, the boy tires and goes to bed, and in the morning, tragically, the snowman has melted. The entire story is told in series of frames (like a comic book) with no words at all.

Wordless picture books are ideal for kids with echolalia. They compel the reader (including the grown-up) to approach the book a little differently each time. They are also perfect for working on storytelling skills, like sequencing and the skill of understanding the meaning of words like before or next.

A few months ago, I did a post about how to use screen time to encourage reading. There is a marvelous Academy Award-nominated short film based on this book from 1982 that is spell-binding and definitely worth watching.
