Children's LiteratureIt 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.
