I bought this book and a few others by Sibylle Von Olfers as Christmas presents for my nieces (ages 2 and 4). The four year old loves this book. The stunning illustrations and story captivated her completely and she insisted that I read it to her about six times on Christmas day. A very lovely story indeed!

My 5 and 3 yr old girls really love the book. My 3 yr old especially. Something about the babies and the striking red coat really draw her into the story.

This is a lovely story for a winter's afternoon. The illustrations are beautiful and the story is sweet. This is a book I plan on giving as gifts next Christmas.

We bought this as a Christmas gift for our 5 yr old daughter. She loves the book so much the first time I read it to her, as soon as it ended she was begging me to read it again!

Young children love this book. The pictures are quite lovely and little ones usually want to hear it again and again. The first time I read it to my 4 year old granddaughter I had to read three times in a row, as she kept delightfully requesting. It is about a little girl being taken to fairyland to the snow queen and then returning home again. Wonderful winter book. It is not about snowflakes being all individually different as one review said before I bought it. You can relie upon any book by this author to be lovely and pure and just what young innocent children need.

Santa gave this book to my almost 4-year-old beside her stocking this Christmas. We love it! It was perfect, as we had a white Christmas this year (our first and probably last!). A great gift.

Love the story and illustrations. Totally captivates our daughter.

Please note that this is a mini-edition.

I plan to return it for a full sized edition because the illustrations are so wonderful. One of our favorites!

This is a lovely little story and the illustrations are magic. However, I wished I'd paid attention to the dimensions when I ordered it. It is so very small. This makes the pictures hard to see if you're reading to multiple children and it gets lots in the shuffle with the other winter/christmas books.

Love the book - the illustrations are fantastic was a childhood favorite. HOWEVER this is a tiny tiny version. Truly not "book" size. I would not recommend this for that reason. It is sized for a doll not a child.

my 3,5 year old niece loves it. The pictures are beautiful (it is an old children's book from the early 20th century), and the story has just about enough content to satisfy children between approximately 2,5 and 5.
