Synopsis

One small snowflake fluttering down--
That's all you need for a snowman.

Or is it? In these pages, an exuberant crew is summoned to create a snowman of heroic proportions. Starting with the very first flake, Alice Schertle's clever and energetic rhyming text details the steps these little sculptors take to create a chilly chum. Barbara Lavallee's bold and lively illustrations overflow with brisk winter energy.
Snow, colorful clothes, and a dash of the miraculous combine to shape a winter experience that is both familiar and fantastic.

While this deceptively simple book starring children building a snowman is ultimately about community—how human beings, no matter how small, can help each other create something bigger than themselves—youngsters will find the lilting language and action-filled illustrations to be just plain fun.
