Christmas for the Snowmen

Ages 3 to 6

  Jimmy, Jack and Junior are a trio of rather glum, and chilly, snowmen. It is a very cold Christmas Eve and the snowmen rather wish that they were not stuck outdoors all on their own whilst all the people in the town are indoors having fun together. The problem is that snowmen cannot go inside houses, or churches, or restaurants for if they do they are sure to start melting.
  Just when things are looking particularly dismal, two children come outside and they come up with a wonderful idea. It is their idea which ends up making Christmas just the sort of cheerful and lively celebration that the three lonely snowmen are looking for.
  With gentle humor and an appreciation for the true meaning of Christmas, the author and illustrator of this beautifully wintery, snowy, picture book have created a charming work which would be perfect for reading out loud on a winter's evening.
