This is a wonderful story for those just learning to read. In the story, this group of children start out by watching the snow fall, then it goes into how all you need is snow for a snow man, then they end up making him eyes, a nose, and then the kids decide he must have clothes... it's a great story. I read it to my kids over and over again. Then, my kids read it to me. Now, they've outgrown it and so it must go.
