Overview

A heartwarming seasonal story with an uplifting message about friendship and having confidence in yourself.

Format: Paperback book and CD

Little Nell's family thinks she's too small to really accomplish anything. But one snowy winter day, while Nell is playing with her forest friends Reindeer, Hare, and Bear Cub, her friends encourage her to build a snowman. Though Nell is unsure of herself at first, with the support and help of her friends, she creates a marvelous snowman. Nell's wondrous creation shows everyone that she IS capable of accomplishing anything she puts her mind to--and that great things often come in "little" packages!

A powerful lesson about self-confidence and a cozy winter treat in one.

Nell is told by her BIG sisters and her mother that she is too small to help out, but everyone, including Nell, feels differently after her forest friends give her the confidence to build a large snowman.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-A slight story with a few engaging winter scenes and a tiny girl who's happy to prove her worth. Little Nell lives with BIG Mama (who wears bunny slippers), BIG Sarah (who has Christmas ornaments dangling from her ears), and BIG Lizzie (who sports tricolored hair). When Little Nell asks if she can help, all three of them say, "No, you can't...You're too small." Disappointed, the child goes off to the "BIG snowy woods" to play with her friends, Reindeer, Hare, and Bear Cub. With their help, she makes the "biggest, best snowman that ever was" and then invites her astounded family to view it. The mixed-media paintings, done with oils, watercolors, and pencil, are filled with droll whimsy. The use of repetitive phrases and a large, clear typeface make the text relatively easy for beginning readers to follow. While not an essential purchase, this title might find a place in collections needing one more wintry picture book.-Harriett Fargnoli, Great Neck Library, NY
Kirkus Reviews
This funny winter's tale from Cuyler features a girl who needs a boost of confidence to get past the teasing of her overwhelming, overbearing mother and sisters.

    Outstanding

    I love reading this book to my two 4 year olds. They sit still and listen to every word. It is a great lesson in self-esteem. They really enjoy it and have even noticed the paths of the rolling snowballs form letters.
