About the book

One small snowflake fluttering down-- 

That's all you need for a snowman. 


Or is it? In these pages, an exuberant crew is summoned to create a snowman of heroic proportions. Starting with the very first flake, Alice Schertle's clever and energetic rhyming text details the steps these little sculptors take to create a chilly chum. Barbara Lavallee's bold and lively illustrations overflow with brisk winter energy. 


Snow, colorful clothes, and a dash of the miraculous combine to shape a winter experience that is both familiar and fantastic.
