Staff Reviews

There really is an art to build a great snowman and that is to do it with friends and make each one it’s own very special snowman.  All You Need for a Snowman is beautifully illustrated and has wonderful words to tell the story. Everyone should read this to get that warm fuzzy feeling of creating something so special.




One small snowflake fluttering down—
That's all you need for a snowman.

Or is it? In these pages, an exuberant crew is summoned to create a snowman of heroic proportions. Starting with the very first flake, Alice Schertle’s clever and energetic rhyming text details the steps these little sculptors take to create a chilly chum. Barbara Lavallee’s bold and lively illustrations overflow with brisk winter energy.

Snow, colorful clothes, and a dash of the miraculous combine to shape a winter experience that is both familiar and fantastic.
