Can the children save the freezing snowman and still keep him toasty?

With stirring emotion and intricate illustrations, this gentle fable demonstrates to young readers the power of persistence, and the rich rewards for helping those around them. The Freezing Snowman is sure to capture their imagination, while it melts their heart!
