Clean, cold, white snow Snow for sledding. Snow for catching on your tongue. Snow for making a SNOWMAN Is there anything as wonderful as SNOW? Is there any better friend than a SNOWMAN? Snow isn't forever, though. The wind shifts, the weather warms and snow melts into spring. The Snowman has become something else--the fog, the rain. But, how can this boy forget his good friend? He doesn't...and he doesn't have to.
