The LAST Snowman
“This afternoon it snowed. It was probably one of the last snows of the winter, so it was lovely sticky snow…perfect for making a snowman.” So begins the funny and poignant tale of a teenage girl and a dangerously tall snowman.
From the kitchen window, a mother watches her teenage daughter build one last snowman in the fresh spring snow. The girl works diligently, and with some help from her little brother, she constructs a dashing giant. But wet snow and gravity take their toll, leaving a young girl who has perhaps loved and lost for the very first time.
The LAST Snowman is a book with timeless appeal for children and adults alike. Award-winning story artist JC Little has playfully captured a tender “moment” in family life, marking the ephemeral grace between childhood and adolescence.
Praise for The Last Snowman:
“Loved this sweet story! It’s not easy being a 14 year old girl… but thankfully mom can still make it all better. With the help of hot chocolate, that is.”
– Jill Smokler, New York Times bestselling author of Confessions of a Scary Mommy
"The LAST Snowman beautifully captures the melting away of two seasons: Winter and childhood."
– Annie @ PhD in Parenting Blog
