It wasn't the rabbit’s fault. The carrot was just lying there in the snow. How was she supposed to know that this particular carrot was the nose of a sleeping snowgirl? Now the snowgirl has a problem, and so does the rabbit. She wants to fix her mistake by replacing the chewed nose. Unfortunately, carrots are hard to come by. Maybe the snowgirl will consider a beet or a radish, perhaps an onion or a potato. All of these root vegetables are growing under the snow in a nearby winter garden. “The Snowgirl’s Nose” is a fully illustrated picture book (32 pages/15 spreads). It is 500 words long and is a humorous tale about perseverance and the forming of an odd-couple friendship. It is the perfect snowy day story to print out for partner reading or to display on the Smartboard in Adobe Reader (2 page view) to read with your class. There are great moments for predicting as students try to figure out what the rabbit will do and how the snowgirl will react.
