Posts Tagged ‘Frosty the Snowman

When my daughter was a little girl she just loved Frosty the Snowman and had me read the book to her over and over. She also had a record of it and played it so many times I thought it would break. Her imaginary friend was called Frosty and he went everywhere with her. I had to be sure Frosty was in the car before I closed the door. Later, when she was a grown-up, I found a Frosty the Snowman stuffy and gave it to her as a gift. She still has it.

So I was very happy to read and review this book.  Snobbity Snowman by Maria Bardyukova and Quiet Riley Jr. is a delightful picture book for anyone who loves snowmen.


The blurb:
Snobbity Snowman has everything a snowman could possibly want: a shiny hat, freshly-picked noses and enough pride to last a lifetime. In fact, he is so selfish and shortsighted that he fails to see the instance his life starts falling apart.

What disasters must take place to open his charcoal eyes? To help him see that pride and possessions cannot bring true happiness? Will he defrost his ego and embrace the warmth of companionship?

Only Snobbity can tell.

Depicting winter in rich and whimsical tones, Snobbity Snowman’s quirky characters and unexpected twists promise to leave a lasting impression on all its snobbulous readers.

My review

A cute picture book featuring a snowman who is a snob. Snobbity even has an upturned carrot nose. But when things go wrong, he doesn´t know how to cope. A clever story about the value of relationships over possessions. The drawings are delightful and very kid-friendly. At the end of the book are fun activities. A great book to read to the little ones. After all, who doesn´t love snowmen, at any time of the year!

Why I liked it

I really liked this fun picture book as children can relate to it. It also has a good message about thinking you are better than others but not in a preachy way.  Some interesting new words are introduced. Other cool characters are cleverly presented and it has a surprise ending. Every time a child reads this book and looks at the pictures, they will notice something new.  This is one that will be read over and over.
