    "Well its certainly a simple solution. If the book is a children's book and is truly about a snowman and a child I suppose this hits the mark. Would have liked to see more information on what actually happens, and the type of children's book it is. Is it a 10 page pop up, a 100 page book for elementary age children? There are too many varieties of children's books to leave it as just a boy and his snowman."

I enjoyed reading it myself. You can't go wrong with this for a christmas book with great illustrations that keep the kids attention well."

    "Bear Stays Up for Christmas is one of my kids' favorites during the holiday season and I so love cuddling up with them for this delightful read. The illustrations are gorgeous with plenty to see, explore, and discuss with the little ones. Because it is rhyming, even those too young to read can start memorizing and speaking along. Plus, it has a great moral for young people while also being entertaining."
