Synopsis

The Snowman and the Sun by Susan Taghdis

The snowman melts into the ground, but then it becomes water, cloud, and snow again.

Reviews

What happens to a snowman when the sun comes out? He melts, of course. And then he turns into water, evaporates, returns to the sky and falls again as rain or, as in this case, snow. The publisher describes the book as a modern-day fable about how our attachments to people and things live on, though they change and sometimes disappear. I would use it with young children as an excellent way to introduce the water cycle - it just shows how different people can appreciate books in different ways. Whichever it is, this is a charming story, delightfully illustrated. -- http://parentsintouch.co.uk It is a delightful story about a snowman and his journey. You may think that a snowman stays firmly put on the ground. But in fact in this story the sun warms him and first of all he melts and then he evaporates and climbs high into the sky. He turns into a cloud drifting free in the sky until it gets cold again and he falls as snow on the ground. Along come the children and once again he becomes a snowman. A story about change and an explanation about how water is everywhere, the water cycle explained for young children. The book is translated by Azita Rassi and published by the brilliant new publisher Tiny Owl, a publisher to watch out for. -- http://www.dolphinbooksellers.co.uk/blog
