If you were a snowman in the park, what would you want to do at Christmas time? In this cute holiday story, snow people can't talk, but they can send their thoughts without making a sound. The little snowman sends a thought to his mother that he wants to sing, to go `a caroling,' to rejoice like the human children. But while she understands his concern, his mother reminds him that snow people can't sing. Although he feels very sad, with the help of a tiny bright bird, a small girl, and the wind, he finds that he can make beautiful music after all. How does he do it?
Author Marilee Joy Mayfield, with her gentle, poetical text, and illustrator Tracy La Rue Hohn, with her gorgeous watercolor drawings, have combined their talents to create what has the potential to become a Christmas classic read aloud. Children not only will be entertained by a fun tale but also will be encouraged to dream and to do what they can to achieve their dreams. Other books by Mayfield include The Golden Cricket: A Story of Luck and Prosperity, Crabby Lessons, The Tiny Adventures of Big Sister and Little Sister, Big Sister, Little Sister, and Sweet Sister Memories. The Snowman's Song is a book that both young and old will enjoy, and it includes a CD read by the author. Also, for every book purchased, a book will be given to a needy child. (There is one reference to "our Savior's birth.")
