The “you” of the title is the snowman that a little girl builds during the first snow of the season. This girl is not just building a snowman but welcoming the return of an old friend. This enchanting celebration of a long-awaited comeback takes us from inside to outside, as we see the girl inside watching as the snow begins to transform the landscape and then follow her eagerly clambering outside. There she bustles about, shaping the snow into mounds, pulling a carrot from her pocket, and giving the snowman arms and a mouth. The girl and her soon-to-melt companion pose for a picture together. The illustrations, showing the changing colors of a winter sky and bright white snow punctuated by the girl’s yellow-and-orange scarf, perfectly convey this change. The last double-page spread shows the girl reminding the melting snowman that if he waits through the coming seasons, they “can share a snowy smile again.” Lovely in illustration and message. Preschool-Grade 2. --Connie Fletcher
