The Most Perfect Snowman by Chris Britt

The Most Perfect Snowman by Chris Britt; illustrated by Chris Britt. 2016. Watercolor, acrylic, Tombow pencils H, HB, and 4H.

Brief summary: Drift was one of the first snowmen built at the beginning of winter and only has coal and sticks while all the other snowmen have mittens, hats, scarves, and carrot noses. One morning, a bunch of kids playing nearby see how plain Drift is and decide to dress him up by giving him some of their clothing making the snowman very happy.  The snowman decides to play with the children all day until the weather changes. After saying good-bye, a blizzard comes blowing off some of Drift’s new clothing.  In the middle of all of the windy snowfall, Drift comes across a small rabbit that is cold and hungry. The snowman kindly gives his few remaining  gifts to the rabbit–the scarf to keep it warm and his carrot nose to feed it. The snowman looks like he did at the beginning of the story, but has changed inside.

Comments: This is a sweet story about sharing. Children give some of their winter clothing to a stranger and make a new friend. The snowman pays it forward by giving his new gifts to a cold, hungry rabbit.
