A young boy and his wintertime friend share a magical night of friendship, fun, and flying in this award-winning, wordless story.

Children's Literature

This classic book has been reissued in board book form. It is a wordless story about a boy who builds a snowman and has a series of adventures with his new friend. There is a lot of information packed into the images and toddlers as well as older kids can appreciate the book. For the young ones, parents and caregivers will probably supply their own words to accompany the illustrations. The ending may be the most difficult for young children to accept and understand. Also the sequence of adventures is more akin to a dream than reality. Much as I like the story, I really don't think it works for the young board book audience. Part of the "Bright and Early Board Books" series. 2000, Random House,
