Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Chime In! Sparkling with shiny foil snowflakes on the jacket, Frosty the Snowman pairs the original song lyrics by Steve Nelson and Jack Rollins with frolicking new illustrations by Richard Cowdrey. Childlike exuberance, intimate close-ups and rosy-cheeked children fill the pages of this large trim picture book. (Sept.) Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
The words to the holiday song, composed in 1950, are illustrated here with soft winter blues and a style reminiscent of Norman Rockwell. Cowdrey effectively uses varying perspectives and angles that draw the reader's eye to Frosty. The oversized book seems to envelop the reader in this fantasy of a snowman who has come to life. The children join him as he rides on old-fashioned sleds, makes snow angels, and runs "down the streets of town." There is a wonderful two-page spread where a surprised policeman looks at Frosty and hollers, "Stop!" Blue endpapers with white text provide the tune and the two verses of the song. Parents and children just might find themselves singing the words or humming the tune. The cheerful, upbeat innocence of a time past pervades the book. 2003, Grosset & Dunlap, Ages 3 to 8.
