Everyone in Freezeland knows that a snowman always wears a hat, but one day a snowman named Dmitri arrives in town with a bare head. Dmitri is sad because he lost his hat on his journey. Little Snowman Stan lends Dmitri his beloved blue plaid cap for a couple of days, but Dmitri does not want to give it back. In order to get his cap back, Stan must enlist the help of his other snowman friends to teach Dmitri the importance of sharing. This charming winter tale explores the common childhood issue of learning to share with appealing imagery and engaging language.
