M. Christina Butler and Tina Macnaughton, the British author/illustrator team behind the long-running Little Hedgehog series, here deliver a sweet story of a young bear who awakens during the middle of his hibernation, and heads out into the wintry world for some fun. After enjoying the snowy vistas, he becomes lonely, and through his actions in creating a snowman, makes some animal friends with whom he can play...

Although I wouldn't describe Snow Friends as particularly memorable, when it comes to the picture-book form, it pairs a gentle, heartwarming tale with sweet illustrations. It also features a glittery element, as the snowman is depicted using some kind of shiny substance, on each page. I sought this one out largely because I have enjoyed the Little Hedgehog series, and I think it will appeal to the same readers as those other books, particularly the ones who appreciated that extra interactive element, whether it's a velvety touch-and-feel hat or a shiny star.
