It all starts with one snowflake. Then billions of snowflakes rolled into one big ball. Add two more balls of snow, bottlecap eyes, and a carrot (of course!) for a nose. Don’t forget hat, scarf, mittens, walnut buttons, and a broom to hold! Alice Schertle’s text blends masterful pacing with playful rhythm and rhyme, serving up a recipe for winter fun. Barbara Lavallee’s stylized illustrations depict the antics of a lively group of children who use all the ingredients to create not one but two winter friends. Highly Commended, 2003 Charlotte Zolotow Award (Ages 2-5)
