From Publishers Weekly:

Deceptively simple, the strength of Goffstein's new book is that it not only captures the delight of a first winter's snowfall, but it also explores the joy life offers when it is lovingly shared. A little girl shows her younger brother how to build a snowman, rolling the snowballs "in fresh places" on the white lawn. ("Year after year, these things work!") When the girl cries to see the snowman standing "alone in the darkening night," her father helps her build another who wears leaves "like a pretty gown." The little girl is pleased that her brother understands: "Now they have company," he says. As in her last book (The School of Names, the illustrations are not Goffstein's familiar line drawings but well-designed pastels, reminiscent of the chalk-on-blackboard drawings of children, who also know the magic of a first snow.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2 A girl and her young brother rush out to enjoy the year's first snowfall. She teaches him how to build a snowman, but later regrets that their snowman is left to stand alone in the dark. Her father comes to the rescue by going out into the night with the girl to make a companion for their snowman. The text is simple and understated, yet explores the full range of the joys, sorrows, and concerns of a child's world. Goffstein is a master who infuses her stories with the warmth and understanding of a loving family. The child-like pastel drawings are the perfect complement to the spare text. A lovely family story to share all year round. Lucille Toth, Summit Free Public Library, N.J.
