Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2–Zahares reimagines this classic song with page after page of jewel-toned art done in pastels. The smiling snowman comes to life and plays with the children who created him. Icy winter scenes contrast deep blues with houses of bright red, orange, and green, surrounded by seasonal details–falling snowflakes, boot-kicked snow piles, lighted windows, steaming mugs in gloved hands, and smoke swirls from chimneys. Followed by a performer's note and an artist's note, the book also includes artist Kenny Loggins's recording of the title song with the bonus of two additional tunes. “Frosty” has a warm, rhythmic country lilt with guitar and the voices of a children's choir. Although numbered incorrectly on the CD, it's easy to distinguish between the traditional “Fishin' Blues” with harmonica and narrative verse and the foot-stomping “Cyndi.” This is a brightly inviting edition to add to collections of earlier versions as it contains the perfect audio accompaniment.–Mary Elam, Learning Media Services, Plano ISD, TXα(c) Copyright 2013.

The pictures in this book are really great. It's the original Frosty the Snowman song, so whe you read it, it's kind of hard not to sing it! My kids love it

I sing the original Frosty the Snowman song with my preschool class every year, but it's always been difficult finding a book to go along with the song. Well, my worries are gone now as this book is done with the original words. I first spotted this book in a Scholastic book flyer and I tought it looked nice, but when I went to the bookstore and saw it on display it was stunning! The colors are vibrant and the pictures are absolutely beautiful, this is a must have for any early childhood classroom.

Picked this up at a thrift shop due to the vintage images contained within. However, it is so vintage that I cannot read certain lines in the book without cracking up ("And a pleasant sort of magic, if I do say so myself."), which encourages my kids to follow suit. Frosty obviously was once an entertainment director on a cruise ship, not to mention a daycare professional- the kids in this book are livin' the high life without frostbite, parental guidance, or video games...just snow and Frosty provide the fun for them. The critical review cracks me up, but I don't think that readers/listeners of this book would enjoy a slow, torturous death of a wintertime pal ("Mom, where is Frosty's left arm? Why did he get liposuction? How many more times is Frosty going to groan in pain?"). I can imagine other modes of destruction that could have taken Ol' Frost, but I do not want anyone to resort to alcohol to calm their nerves. Anyway, the big guy melts, and I do disagree with the prior negative reviewer here as well...the kids' reactions are pretty casual. The body language in the pic reads: "Dude, where's my Frosty? We were going to go to the drugstore to get milkshakes...". I am thinking that if the kids in this death scene pic were to seriously lose it, that our kids would end up in psychoanalysis for the next eighteen years. Practically the whole book is winter wonderland stuff until the disappearance of Frosty, and then you get the message that applying anthropomorphism to ice crystal flakes sucks. Who wants hot chocolate?

My 8 month old loves music and I want him to grow up on the Christmas classics so this book is a hit with both of us!

Bought this to send as Christmas gift for 5 year old boy. Graphics are harsh looking; not what I was expecting for a child. Also, though the CD has a nice version of Frosty the Snowman song, the other two songs have nothing to do with Christmas and really weren't meant for children. Cost too much to return; not sure what i'm going to do with it. Bought something else locally to send.
