Communication Through Art

A novice will look at this book as a simple picture or comic strip type of book. It is much more than this. It provides both children and adults the opportunity to infer as to what is happening and to create their own story through the precious colored sketched pictures. This should be a family activity to come up with a creative story using the sketches as a springboard to fun and imaginative learning. I would save this for a dreary, winter day in January to celebrate cold weather in the aftermath of the excitement of the Christmas holidays.

A great pre-reading activity with your toddler

I love this story. The fact that the story is without words was a plus. This book provided an excellent opportunity to snuggle up with my little boy and listen as he told me the story he saw in the pictures. It was the beginning of many discussions about the books we read at bedtime and those he had later to read in school. He is 21 years old now and a very articulate man, and I have some wonderful memories of helping him to learn to read. The story itself evokes the magic we all knew as children, and the poignant ending leaves open the door to hope that the snowman will re-appear when winter comes again.


A gentle book that has no words. The story is in the pictures. For my three year old son who so desperately wants to read, he had no problem 'reading' this story. He was able to tell a story, look at the pictures and pick out different details and tell a different story. The pictures are gentle and kind and show a special relationship with imagination, dreams, wishes, children and the fine line between reality and imagination that children can walk with ease. Enjoy.


29 months baby, My daughter,Eugene really likes this book!! She learned about snow through this book! This snowman-shaped book is her good friend. Thanx a million, snowman!

A cute story

I like this story because it doesn't take that long to read. My toddler has a short attention span so this book worked well for him. The ending, however, may be a slight "shock" to preschoolers because the snowman melts; but that can lead to a good dicussion for parent and child.

It's actually for the movie, I've never read the book....

Well, like I said, I didn't read the book, I just watched the movie. Like the book, there were no words, only music. I thought it was a pretty cute movie. It was really different from any other little cartoon i've seen. It was interesting, but I liked it. It also had really pretty music. If anyone has seen the movie, and knows where I could get some sheet music for the main song (the one that plays at the very end) so I could learn it on the piano, please email me at It would be very much appreciated! Thanks!
