Reviews

PreS-K-Little Bear, Small Fox, and Fluff Bunny want to keep their newly built snowman looking happy. He smiles as they entertain him with stories and headstands until it grows dark. In the morning when they see the frown on his face, they suspect he's sad because of the cold. They find clothes to cover him up, but that only makes him melt and look sadder. Together they discover what their snowman needs more than company and clothes to smile again. Silvery blue-green glitter makes the snowman appear to twinkle. And as the lovable animal friends play in the snowy woods, they make winter seem cozy and fun. This book would be a pleasant read-aloud for a winter-themed storytime.-Tanya Boudreau, Cold Lake Public Library, AB, Canada (c) Copyright 2010.

In a snowy forest glen, Fluff Bunny, Small Fox, and Little Bear construct a sparkly snowman (thanks to a coat of green glitter on each page on which he appears) with a sweet smile and a marshmallowy head. Fluff keeps the snowman company, telling him stories until dark. But in the morning, the snowman has a frown and looks "sad and shivery," so the animals give him a warm hat and blanket, which makes him melt. The snowman finally smiles again when the three animals give him a big hug: "Snowman wasn't cold on the outside. He was cold on the inside!... He just needed a hug!" Children should relate to both the excitement and concern of Macnaughton's cuddly, expressive animals as they work together. Ages 3-7. (Oct.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
