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.
