Jolly Tall is desperate to see the snow, but it's not cold enough outside. His friends decide to show him the magic of snow by creating special indoor snow. Their first few attempts are unsuccessful but Old Bear soon comes up with the answer and the toys are soon enjoying an indoor snowstorm. Outside, real snow starts to fall but the lure of Old Bear's snowflake biscuits proves too tempting--besides, real snow is cold! Children will delight in the toys' attempts to create the magic of snow and thoroughly enjoy their escapades. With warm and humorous colour pictures, Jane Hissey recreates both the magic of snow and the cosy world of the nursery. --Philippa Reece--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
The classic story of how Jolly Tall discovers the magic of snow from her other playroom friends is now a Mini Treasure.

I stumbled across this story book at a school fete - well I must say it was the best 20 pence book i'd ever bought. I smile whenever it gets pulled out from the cupboard for a bedtime read. My youngest son is now 8 and still loves this book, there's just something very simple, magical and warming about the story and the characters. Love it.
I needed the story as we were using it as a display for our classroom corridor. It was a shame that i couldn't find a bigger vesion at the time. I took photos of each page and made a powerpoint of it which surficed. it would have been too small to use by itself in a class situation. Nice book for an individual child though. Really nice story.
This was bought to put in a party bag due to the small size. It was well received by all parents. Loveable characters, good story, great for reading to children. Nothing is lost by the small size of this book.
The latest escapade in the Little Bear nursery involves Jolly Tall and his wish for snow. In an effort to show him what snow is like, the other toys show him various things with the qualities of snow. Finally, when they look out the window, there's a lovely surprise...
