Overview

The Old Silk Hat placed upon Frosty's head is immortalized in story and song. But this short story details the history behind the silk hat and how it came to be infused with life-producing magic.

Follow the progression and the changing of owners of the silk hat as it factors into the lives of several men during their lives and relationships before granting Frosty life.

The story can be considered general audience and is a heart-felt tribute to the children of the Sandy Hook Elementary tragedy on December 14th, 2012. It was written in direct response to the tragedy and home coming of Emilie Parker to Ogden, UT for her funeral, as author P. Edward Auman contemplated how best to honor the children and bring comfort to their family and friends as well as his own. Several books were nearing prepartion for publication in 2013 as the author had not previously published any of his works he has written in the last twenty-five years. But none of them captured the essence of why our children's lives touch each of us so strongly.

Ideally, the story may be read with your children in about thirty to forty minutes, and may best be used during the Christmas Holidays. However, it is written in such a manner that it may appeal to all denominations and faiths as well. It is the one story that brought the author to tears even during the course of writing it.

    Great short story for the holidays. Appropriate for all ages.

    Great short story for the holidays. Appropriate for all ages. A story about the magic behind the old silk hat that brought Frosty the Snowman to life. Not what I expected. This is a fresh look at the myth behind the song "Frosty the Snowman". A great FREE read. Enjoyable.
