The Lovereading4Kids comment

When Iggy and Martina go to bed everything is the same as usual. But in the night comes the snow and the world is transformed. First they make a snowman, though he looks more like a snowbear; anyway, ‘he looks happy to be made’ says Martina, and it’s true. When the two children sledge down the hill – against their mum’s instructions – they run into real danger, until the snowbear arrives to save them. Iggy, Martina and the snowbear are hugely appealing characters and this funny, exciting picture book has a real sense of magic. It’s beautiful to look at and will stand repeated reading. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

The Snowbear by Sean Taylor

Snow comes in the night, and Iggy and Martina make a snowbear. But then a sledge ride takes them deep into the woods. How will they get back home again? The Snowbear is a spellbinding story about the magic of snow and the power of a child's imagination. With a simple text and beautiful illlustrations, it will be read again and again. Themes of friendship, loyalty, and bravery make it a great choice for story time, as a bedtime read or on car trips. Children will love the crisp, wintry setting brought to life by Claire Alexander's art.
