This is one of the all time favourites of any nursery and certainly a book to turn back to time and time again whether you’re a child or an adult. No words, just the most wonderful pictures telling a poignant and moving story about a boy and a snowman. It’s a book that will fire the imagination of every child because they themselves can create the words to go with the pictures. Not just a classic but THE classic of all time, in our humble opinion. A book for parents to ‘read’ aloud with young children as well as perfect for slightly older children to immerse themselves in an imaginary world.
A little boy makes a snowman. When he looks through the window at night, the snowman has come to life. The little boy shows the snowman around the house and later they go and visit Father Christmas. When the boy wakes up in the morning, the snowman has melted.
