I bought this book to share with my family for our annual holiday tradition of reading a Christmas story aloud. As I love snowmen, this was a no-brainer! The story is in poem-form, and flows beautifully, carried along with the wonderful soft, yet very lively illustrations.
This is truly a charming picture book that will fit beautifully into your Christmas season, with a simple message of joy and celebration, and even a reference to "the birth of a King" for those of us who are Christians.
Oh, and by the way, picture books are not just for kids! The youngest person present at our Christmas party was 14 years old, and the oldest 92! We have plans to purchase this book for our junior high school library :)
