    Lovely but too brief The illustrations are bright and lovely. However, I find the story is too brief even for a children's picture book. Lovely but too brief The illustrations are bright and lovely. However, I find the story is too brief even for a children's picture book.

    'Snow on Martinmans by Heather Sleighholm is a book about the November 11th religious holiday. I did not grow up in a religious tradition that taught me about Saint Martin, but I liked this picture book about a snowy day and a feast. It's snowing at grandma's house and she is telling the children about Martinmas. It celebrates Saint Martin who was a Roman soldier who cut and shared his coat with a poor beggar. He became a monk and was made bishop, but he didn't want to be one at first. They found 'Snow on Martinmans by Heather Sleighholm is a book about the November 11th religious holiday. I did not grow up in a religious tradition that taught me about Saint Martin, but I liked this picture book about a snowy day and a feast.

He became a monk and was made bishop, but he didn't want to be one at first. They found him hiding among the geese, so the holiday is celebrated with feasting on geese. It's a warm story about a holiday with food on a cold day. It's also about the kindness we can show others. The illustrations are a bit one dimensional, but they are colorful and folksy. I found it charming and unassuming. I received a review copy of this ebook from Xist Publishing and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this ebook.
