“The Rabbit and the Snowman” is the story of a snowman that was built in a field by a group of children. When the children finished making him they left him all alone. The snowman was sad and wondered if there was something that was wrong with him that would make the children leave him. Although the children did not return, the snowman did make friends with a rabbit, but then spring came and the rabbit was left all alone. The rabbit too wondered if there was something wrong with him that would cause the snowman to leave.
Cayden: “I like how they built the snowman. It is fun to build them. We made one last year in our yard. I think that instead of one snowman they should have built two snowmen so the one wouldn’t get sad. It was good that the rabbit was nice to him though. They were friends. But then the rabbit got sad when the snowman melted. I liked the pictures in the story. I wonder who put those carved pumpkins out in the woods though.”
“The Rabbit and the Snowman” by Sally O. Lee is a sweet story about friendship. The storyline is very simple and easily understandable by the targeted age group of age 4-8. The watercolor illustrations are fun and wonderfully executed. I especially liked when the illustrations formed borders around the words. Very beautifully done!
