Product Description

Product Description

A forlorn little snowman hopes, prays and yearns with all his heart for a beautiful melodic voice so he can rejoice by singing Christmas carols just like human children do. There is little hope that he will ever have a voice, because the snow world is quiet and snowpeople communicate by sensing thoughts and feelings that travel as ice droplets in the swirling cold winter air. But when a cheery red cardinal awakens his mind and a kind young girl renews his hope, a Christmas miracle happens and the little snowman realizes his longed-for dream in a powerful, joyful, unexpected way.

Perfect children's book I thought it was amazing. My children loved it the pictures were amazing! Just because it free does not mean it is bad. It is a lovely quick story book and is written in a poem. Couldn't have more Christmas cheer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Viva the Snowman! 8 Dec 2006
By Gloria Giordano - Published on
I bought this book for my little goddaughter, but I couldn't bear to part with it and so had to order a second copy. It's the type of story that casts a spell with its rhythms and rhymes, and wears its heart on its sleeve. I love the unabashed spirituality of its message--it's one of the few Christmas books I've seen whose author remembers the reason for the season. But I can't imagine anyone of any faith, child or adult, who wouldn't be taken with this, by the sheer gorgeousness of its words and illustrations. Buy it for the kids in your life to encourage them to find their own voices and sing their own songs, but don't forget one for yourself. After all, everyone is a child, or wants to be, at Christmastime!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet Unique Christmas Story 5 Dec 2012
By Nicole R. Elliott - Published on
This book is beautifully illustrated and has a sweet, heartwarming story. I especially loved when the Little Snowman referred to Christmas as the birth of our Savior and the whimsical rhythms and unique storyline make it a delightful bedtime story. It's a little on the longer side-so I would recommend it for ages 3 and up unless you have a captivated little one!
5.0 out of 5 stars A snowman shows children how to dream 8 Mar 2010
By Wayne S. Walker - Published on
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.")
