The Snowman Magical Magnetic Playscene by Raymond Briggs
  

The Lovereading4Kids comment

Beautiful illustrations recreate Raymond Briggs’ magic both within the book and the magnets and coupled together with simple sentences throughout. Children can place the right magnets according to the story to each page and it’s this interactive magnetic nature of the book that they will really enjoy time and time again. At the end there is a wonderful fold-out scene where children can create their own Snowman and Friends story. It’s a sturdy board book, with a closable area to return the magnets for safe keeping.

Synopsis

The Snowman Magical Magnetic Playscene by Raymond Briggs

Simple sentences encourage children to choose shaped magnets from the pack and place them on the magnetic pages to complete each scene. They'll love dressing the snowman in his hat and scarf, adding delightful wintry wildlife or livening up a snowman party with bright balloons. Once they've worked through the spreads, they'll find a surprise giant gatefold which opens from the back of the book for hours of creative play. Each magnet and spread is illustrated in Raymond Briggs' familiar style to delight children and adults alike.
