PreS-Gr 2–Sneezy the Snowman is cold. In an effort to warm up, he drinks hot cocoa and subsequently melts. Now a puddle in the surrounding snow, he asks three children (and two playful cardinals) to rebuild him. Once complete, Sneezy is again too cold, so one of the little girls gives him a hat. Unfortunately, it is not enough to keep him warm. He attempts a dip in a hot tub only to once again melt and be rebuilt, and adorned with an additional garment. He has a similar experience involving a campfire. This time, however, the snowman gains a coat. Now he's too hot. At last, the children get him seven scoops of ice cream and he reaches a happy medium. The repetitive, rhyming text reads well. The bright, cartoonlike illustrations are hand drawn and colored in Photoshop, and the small details will reward those who have a close look, particularly at those cardinals. This new take on a popular seasonal theme should find a warm audience during cold months.Laura Butler, Mount Laurel Library, NJ

Even snowmen get chilly sometimes, and on a particularly blustery day, Sneezy just can’t stop shivering. With his own ingenuity and the help of three multicultural children, he tries cocoa, a hat, a hot tub, a scarf, a campfire, and a coat to warm up, but with each attempt, he melts, and it’s up to the kids to build him up “brand new” again before yet another puddle can form. At last, the kids realize that ice-cream can play a key role as a temperature-regulating agent. The rhyming text keeps the snow show moving along at a brisk, bouncing pace, and the series of problems and solutions creates an entertaining, recognizable pattern. The large digital illustrations are colorful and uncluttered, and they slyly integrate the additional antics of two boisterous cardinals, who cavort along with Sneezy until his happy, Goldilocks-like proclamation, “At last! I feel just right.” Although not a necessary purchase, this may be just the thing to freshen up wintry storytimes.

It might seem like Sneezy is a rude snowman just because he doesn't say "thank you" after the children rebuild him and after they share their items with him. However, when you read the entire story and it concludes it doesn't even register, because they are all having fun. I don't read the story to my nephews in a belligerent manner (but in a fun and silly way) and this is how I think it was intended to be read.
Also, my nephew who is 4, said, "Snowmen can't talk, they're not real," as soon as I showed him the first page. So basically, kids can see and feel things in completely different ways than we do. If your kid is perceptive enough to make the connection between charitableness and gratitude, and what should be said in communication during these moments, then I would definitely point out that "Yes, poor Sneezy is just too cold to remember to say thank you."
My nephew was perceptive enough to notice that the little girl who gave away her coat was going to be cold. I thought of that myself when I first read it (before reading it to him and his brother). I would have liked Ms. Wright to have given her another coat. However, I would just tell my nephew that her sweater is really heavy, or stick with what I said at the beginning when he said that snowmen do not talk--that this is just make-believe, for fun.
To conclude, if you are going to take this super-seriously and presume that Sneezy is rude, for not saying thank you (when he's a talking snowman) that it is taking it off on an unnecessary tangent. To conclude further, on completely way off tangents--charity is for God, and those that give to the poor, don't stand there for recognition, especially not guileless, generous children.
