The Snowman - Raymond Briggs I always really liked this book (so I should have voted 4 stars), but this past winter my 13-year-old son Alma (Down Syndrome, autism) fell in love with it. He reads it daily, and wants me to read it with him sometimes. He loves that we can pull out the video or turn the soundtrack on on Spotify. When I watch him, he adores the pages drawn comic-style, with 16 boxes of sequential art per page. But then the next day he'll be poring over one of the wide spreads with just one drawing! So now I love this book. Yes, I wish Alma could talk, but a wordless picture book is such a good match that I'm grateful for a genre that 'speaks' to my boy.
