As she watches, she realizes that it will probably be the last snowman her fourteen year old daughter will build, and the book explores this bittersweet moment. As the mother of a fifteen year old, I recognized the sentiments expressed in this book. When children are small and need us twenty four hours a day, we can find ourselves wis [...]

A wonderfully magical story about building a snowman after the last snow of Spring. But the magic doesn't spring out of an old felt hat or a wizard's spell. The true magic of JC Little's new ebook lies in the way the artist has used this new digital medium to brilliantly bring her story to life in ways that just wouldn’t work in a traditional book—the colors, pacing and movement are amazing. And I won’t spoil the ending, but I loved watching the loving bond between mother and daughter come [...]

The Author provided me with a free ecopy of this sweet book for review. I read the very shirt & heart touching book & it was beautiful. A very short story with a beautiful message. I do not have a daughter of my own, but could relate to this via my son. Taking every opportunity and chance to show our children they are loved is so very important to their self worth. Even when they get to "that age" when they don't openly ask for your affection and attention. Very sweet & heart touchin [...]
