Ages 3-8. Snow children playing outside on a winter's day are fascinated by a young boy building a snow boy with his parents. Soon Jacob spies the snow children, and he joins them for a festive snowball fight. When he realizes that the snow children lack parents to care for them, Jacob builds a snow mother and father ("With legs to lead the little ones, and arms to hold them tight"), resulting in a happy, loving snow family. Celebrating the joys of snow play and the rewards of family love, this magical tale is a read-aloud delight: "'Whoosh! ' blows the northern wind, 'CAW!' laughs the crow.'Crunch! ' go the little boots on fresh-fallen snow." Lush, vibrant, detailed paintings endow characters and the wintry farm landscape with depth and richness, conveying the varying snow family and human perspectives. The endearingly mischievous, bedraggled snow children, with traditional coal mouths and eyes, carrot noses, and a hodgepodge of hats and scarves, illustrate the tender message. An inventive story, both gentle and loving. Shelle Rosenfeld
