I received the book "The Snowman's Song: A Christmas Story" to review over on my blog The princess and the monkey. Sometimes a children's book is just as moving to an adult as it is special to the child. As soon as I started reading this beautifully written and illustrated book, I thought of Kennedy, Chloe and the other special children in our lives that can not speak. I felt a connection to the little snowman's mom, who tries to comfort her son when he is having trouble reaching his dream. So many of us feel the frustrations and despair of our children. We all long to see them be able to follow their dreams and hope they stay faithful. In the story the little snowman finds encouragement to never give up on those dreams.
"Even when there's no hope, you must see a star."
He also finds, what we all want to see for our children, true friendship. The child in the story shows so much compassion for the little snowman that it teaches children how to care about others no matter their condition. I felt so moved by this story written by Marilee Joy Mayfield that I wanted to share it not only with the readers of my blog, but with the special families here on Kidz.
I would love to share this book with a special family, and thanks to the generosity of Leaping Antelope Productions and the author, I have one copy to giveaway. To enter, leave a comment here telling us what dream your child is trying to reach and how you are encouraging those dreams.
