The day starts wintry grey. But look! Suddenly, silently frozen flakes are falling from the sky. And ever so softly all around, snow, snow, snow is covering the ground! Hooray! Soon you'll be standing outside in the bright white world.

When a little girl rushes out into the freshly-fallen snow, her world is filled with wonder. This book captures the magic of a moment before it melts away. Now you can share in the happiness it brings, time after time.

You Make Me Smile

World Book Day's recommended Christmas Gift Book for 0-5s - December 2014

A beautifully illustrated gentle book about a little girl, the advent of winter and the consequential building of a snowman… The book is so captivating, the pages have a simplicity about them that makes everything so uncomplicated and safe… Even as the snow melts, and winter turns to spring, there is acceptance that the snowman will melt, but will return again… The language has been carefully chosen, the words have a gentle quality… This would make a soothing bed time story, as well as generating a discussion about weather, seasons and winter. - The School Librarian, Vol 61(1) spring 2014
