Blog Tour: The Last Snowman by JC Little

I'm very happy to be part of the blog tour for The Last Snowman. This book is such a fun and touching story about a girl just on that line between childhood and becoming a young woman. Written in the form of a children's book, it celebrates a mother's love for her child and those bittersweet moments when you realize your baby isn't a baby anymore.

I enjoyed this book because although it's enjoyable for adults, the illustrations and short bursts of text are great for kids too. The theme of growing up went completely over my four year old's head, but the fun of making a huge snowman and watching it tumble over were right up his alley.

The best part of the story? The snowman has FOUR snowballs. He looked up at me and said "Can you do that? Make a snowman with four snowballs?"

This is a great little book that's perfect for boys and girls, young and old.

Plus, with all the frickin' snow we've been getting this winter, I think an epic snowman building session is in order. These photos are of our current snow pile. There's another 20 cm forecast. The snowman may just build itself at this rate.

In December, I posted a review of this little gem of a book. If you missed it, click on this post, REVIEW: THE LAST SNOWMAN. I liked the book so much I jumped at the chance to be part of the blog tour for the book.

  1. Your little four year old is so cute! I love that he noticed the fourth ball - it's important because it's the plot trigger. This is a great post Kathleen, Vanna White pose and all!
