Web Review: The Snowman
One my favorite films to watch during the holidays is The Snowman by Raymond Briggs, a 23 minute pencil-drawn animation. It’s the purity of The Snowman that I enjoy the most. The film is without words and set to the composition “Walking in the Air” by Howard Blake and performed by Peter Auty. With his wonderful illustrations and a timeless musical composition, Briggs brilliantly captures the innocence of a young boy’s imagination during the holiday season. If you too are a fan of this movie, check out The Snowman web site at www.thesnowman.co.uk. Teachers can find lessons and classroom outlines, and activities for children of all abilities from ages 4 and upwards by going to their Fun & Games page, or simply click here.
