Harriet Ziefert, Mavis Smith. Using their cache of already published easy-to-read books, Puffin launched their Easy-to-Read program. Though the quality of stories in this series is uneven, some of them are superb. Like most other beginning-to-read series, Puffin Easy-to-Read is divided into reading levels. Level 1 uses sentences with clear and simple words and illustrations that help the reader understand the story line.

There once lived an old man and an old woman who wanted a child, so they made a little girl out of snow. When the old woman kissed her, she came to life! The old couple was very happy until the warm weather came, and the snow child had to go. But when the snow returned, it brought with it a wonderful surprise.

The Snow Child by Harriet Ziefert was about and older couple who could not have a child. This made them very sad, though they still loved each other. One day, they noticed all of the little kids playing out in the snow and decided to join them. Instead of making a snow man, they decided to make a snow child. They gave her a body with arms and legs, eye, ears, nose, and even hair. They topped the snow child off with a dress.

When the woman kissed the snow child, it came to life. This made them both very happy. They finally had a child. They prepared her a bed inside, but the child refused to sleep in it. She needed to stay outside where it was cold, so they made her a bed of ice and she slept in it.

When spring began, the snow child ran away to follow the cold. This devastated the husband and wife, but when winter came, so did the child.

This book seemed unrealistic even for a children’s book. There should have been some sort of explanation as to how the snow came to life, even if it was something as simple as “And the woman’s want for a child was so great that when she kissed the snow, it came to life.”

The illustrations were unique. It looks like the illustrator cut up pieces of magazine-like paper of various fabrics and threw them together. Everything was very flat-looking. Some of the cutouts were very realistic, and you could see the threads in the clothing, whereas others looked drawn and dotted with white-out. The spring section of the book was very colorful.

Overall, this was by no means by favorite children’s book, but it was okay.

expected a more detailed storyline. I had read the adult version and told my grandchildren about it. they were very interested. found the child-version to be lacking. grandchildren are 4 and 7.

This tale was the inspiration for the novel Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey.

I loved this book as a child, when my father would read it to me before bedtime I would get so excited, it was my favorite. I would recommend it for any young child. To me this book is a must have, so I am ordering it again since the copy I had when I was a child got worn out, now I can read it to my children.

This is a sweet retelling of an old tale,but what makes it prticularly good are the charming illustrations by Julia Zanes. Both my six year old and 10 year old daughters love it and we've given several copies as presents this winter.
