Overview

Holiday charm abounds in this satisfying story featuring three irresistibly appealing snowmen who discover that "the more, the merrier" is true when it comes to Christmas!

It is Christmas Eve. Inside the church, the restaurant, and the houses, everyone is celebrating. But outside, in the deserted street, three snowmen shiver in the cold, dark night. They long to join in the festivities, but as everyone knows, snowmen melt indoors. Suddenly a door flies open, and two children come rushing out. Soon they are joined by other children. Working together, they create a wonderful surprise for the lonely snowmen -- the gift of a truly merry Christmas.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
It was Christmas eve, and it was so cold "the snowmen stood shivering." Three of them, Jimmy, Jack and Junior, decide to look for a place where they can warm up. They cannot go into the church because there is no room. They go to a restaurant and soon discover it is too warm for them when puddles begin to form around their feet. When several children see them, they decide to build more snowmen. Now these three have plenty of company with whom to party. They can stand close together to stay warm. The illustrations are filled with festive, happy people and scenes. The snowmen are drawn as three distinct characters, and it is easy to tell them apart. I just have trouble with the premise that is too cold for snowmen. 2004, North-South Books, Ages 5 to 8.

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-Three snowmen learn that while it is cold and lonely outside on Christmas Eve, it is way too warm for them indoors. Then, the village children turn out and quickly make 20 more snow people, which seems far more festive. Appealing, childlike illustrations enhance the slight, ephemeral story.-V. W.
