The littlest snowman, Sam, is trying as hard as he can, but he can't quite get the hang of making snow. Down in Countryville, Sarah and Tommy and their animal friends are counting on him to bring frosty flakes and fun to their chilly, gray forest. Sam is worried. Will he be able to do it?
Joyous scenes show the little snowman as he tries and tries—and triumphs. Popular Americana artist Susan Winget paints sparkling pictures as she tells young children a story about the magic of giving.

PreSchool-K—The premise here is that snowmen are not only made out of snow but are the creators of it. (The chicken-or-the-egg question that this raises won't trouble most preschoolers.) Sam is the only student in snow school who is having trouble with the basic equation: Snowman + broom + the magic of giving = snow. Nonetheless, his teacher sends him on his first mission to Countryville, where children are waiting for the first flurries of the season. Amid pastoral landscapes where the wildlife resemble stuffed animals and the children are round and rosy as dolls, Sam learns—after a few disappointments—the meaning of the magic of giving. "He paints the sky and makes the woods and town sparkle." The book cover sparkles, too, with a liberal sprinkling of glitter that has a pleasantly grainy texture. While the book is neither inventive nor surprising, preschoolers will smile over the sweet, lovable pictures and simple, reassuring story.—Susan Weitz, formerly at Spencer-Van Etten School District, Spencer, NY
