The illustrations are very cute, colorful and funny.

The Snowman keeps being attracted to warm things that disagree with him and make him melt. It's actually very silly and funny, but he is not very nice to the kids. He takes and takes and makes the children work for him instead of making them happy or having fun. It should be called the Selfish Snowman.

It's okay... I didn't find any solution in the end, they just went for ice cream. Don't know how I used this in a classroom, maybe have the children finish the story.

I also would have liked to see a new shape of the snowman every time he asks the kids to make him new again. ( )

Sneezy the Snowman is cold so he tries several different things to help warm him up like drinking hot chocolate, wearing a scarf, and sitting in a hot tub. Naturally, these things make him melt because they are too hot. This book has a rhyming, repetitive pattern that is funny, engaging and invites participation from the audience. One of my favorites!

Sneezy the Snowman realizes he is too cold. His friends help him come up with several ways to help him warm up. Each idea makes him melt, until they decide to give him a jacket, scarf, and hat. Unfortunately, Sneezy is then too hot! Sneezy and his friends come up with a smart way to keep Sneezy at just the right temperature! ( )

Beautiful colorful book with a cute story about a snowman who is always cold and causes himself to melt. See how the children solve the problem! ( )

Sneezy the Snowman gets cold one day. He drinks a warm drinks and melts. Children build him up again and gave him hat. Sneezy once again got cold and sat in a hot tub. He melted again, and was rebuilt once more. The children fitted him with a scarf. That still was not enough. Sneezy was cold and sat by a campfire. Once again, he melted. The children again rebuilt him fitted with a coat. Sneezy was then too warm and then ate an ice cream cone so he was the perfect temperature. Overall, this was a book that I found to be a very good read. I talked to a second-grade teacher and she said this was very popular in her class. The illustrations are very rich and colorful, and the story in fun and a good fit for a younger child. This would be a good story for children to read when the cold is coming and they are learning to dress properly
