When I first started reading this, I thought it was in the voice of the little girl excited for the first snow or her parents, but quickly realized it was a snowman telling the story.
Of course – silly me! It is kids, after all, that give life to a snowman each time it snows.
Remember that ad that played before movies for a while? The one where the girl stored her snowman in the fridge over the summer and would sit and watch movies with him? The one that made you sob like a baby everytime you saw it? Or was that just me? It was called Lily & the Snowman and you can watch it here.
Anyways, this book reminds me of that commercial. The bonds of friendship, the waiting through the seasons and the anticipation of winter.
