Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-Ziefert has retold a pleasant Russian folktale in simple language and short sentences suitable for beginning readers. An old couple who "wanted a little boy or a little girl very much" build one out of snow. When the old lady kisses the snow child, she comes to life, bringing joy to all around her. However, when spring comes, the snow child is forced to go where it is cold. The sad couple feel they will never be happy again, until winter arrives once more and the youngster returns. The book is illustrated with exquisite collages-autumnal browns and oranges give way to wintry whites and blues-with visual clues that make the entire reading experience a pleasurable one. An appealing addition to easy-reader shelves.-Anne Knicker- bocker, Cedar Brook Elementary School, Houston, TX Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
