Description
Clean, cold, white snow! Snow for sledding. Snow for catching on your tongue. Snow for making a SNOWMAN! Is there anything as wonderful as SNOW? Is there any better friend than a SNOWMAN? Snow isn't forever, though. The wind shifts, the weather warms and snow melts into spring. The Snowman has become something else--the fog, the rain. But, how can this boy forget his good friend? He doesn't...and he doesn't have to. Bestselling author, Alison McGhee reminds us all that nothing that has been cared for can ever disappear for good, for, "What you love will always be with you." And, this tender story about the power of friendship will stay with readers long after they turn the last page.
