Giving Books for the Holidays III

Tonight I just have one book to share with you.  This is a book that I found through a BLU (Blogger Link Up) post.  I am so glad that I take the time to read the issue on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.  I have found some great books and contacts through there.

The Snowman's Song: A Christmas Story by Marilee Joy Mayfield

The Snowman's Song is an enchanting tale of longing and fulfillment. A little snowman yearns to sing Christmas carols, but is desolate because he hasn't a voice. From the kindness of others, he dares to believe in the impossible and experiences a Christmas miracle. Beautifully told in melodic verse, this inspirational story shows that impossible dreams do come true and reminds us of the true reason for the season.

44 pages
Ages 4-8

My Thoughts:  What a beautiful book, with a beautiful story!  The pictures are very crisp and vivid.  The snow people appear to move and act real due to the illustrations.  The blues and whites in the pictures just make it look cold!  The pages are shiny like a present at Christmas.

Young children will enjoy this one because it rhymes.  Older children will enjoy the story because of the wonderful message it brings.  It's okay to dream; you just have to believe you can and you can.  It is a great message for children, especially at Christmas.  I love how the author created this beautiful story with meaning behind it, not just a storyline.

One of the best things about this book is that it comes with a CD of the author reading the book.  I love to be read to, as an adult, and children do to.  Whether you read it to them, or they listen to the CD and follow along, they will be hearing a wonderful story.

Who on your list might enjoy this book?  For every book that is sold direct to readers, the publisher gives a book to charity.  Just click on the title of the book to take you to the website.

This book looks so adorable! I love the cute snowman on the cover :)

I'm also leaving this comment because again, I'm not sure how to contact you.. I've sent you a couple more emails about prizes I won back in the summer that I still have yet to receive, and I haven't heard back from you. I'm really hoping to get this resolved. I'd love an update, if possible. :)
