The Snowman's Song: A Christmas Story

Recently I had a chance to review the children's book The Snowman's Song: A Christmas Story by Marilee Joy Mayfield with illustrations by Tracy La Rue Hohn. I fell in love with this heartwarming story about believing in the impossible. Snowpeople communicate without sound. One little snowman mesmerized by the sounds of singing wants to also sing like the caroling children at Christmastime. Given hope by a cardinal, he realizes he needs to believe that he can sing before he can actually do so. With the help of a little girl and a prayer a Christmastime miracle occurs. This courageous snowman shows that nothing is impossible if you believe.

The illustrations are beautifully done in this charming hardcover book. You can see samples of the text and illustrations by clicking here. The book also comes with a bonus CD of the story being read by the author. The book can be purchased at the publisher's, Leaping Antelope Productions', website. For every copy of The Snowman's Song: A Christmas Story purchased this holiday season, a copy will be donated to a needy family. What a great gift to give this holiday season.

Thank you to Leaping Antelope and The Product Review Place for the chance to review this book.

That sounds like a wonderful book and even better that they donate one book to the needy for every one purchased. That's true holiday spirit!

Thanks for visiting my blog awhile back. I like yours, am now following and looking forward to reading more.
