I am pretty excited to be a part of JC Little's The LAST Snowman Blog Tour. She is an amazing artist and author. You can find more of her work as The Animated Woman or on Twitter as @littleanimation.
The book is a very cute story about her daughter's adventure while building a snowman. What I loved most about it was that her daughter, at age fourteen, still exhibits the playfulness of a child when at her age that might be in question. As a stay at home dad, that playfulness is important to maintain. Did JC's daughter continue on? If you want to find out what happens you can purchase the book either on Amazon for Kindle HERE or on Createspace if you want the paperback. At $3 for the Kindle version, you really can't find a book this great at that price anywhere.
Or better yet, you can enter my giveaway down below and win yourself a copy and some swag to go with it. That is of course after you read my story about my own daughter and her snowman building.
Kids don't care that our cars are buried under inches of snow or that their dad gets pumped about a snowblown driveway where you can see pavement again. My kids and I played outside in the snow, my six year old daughter learning a valuable lesson about her limitations in the process.
My daughter Sarah was determined to build a snowman. Minutes into pushing her snowball across the ground, she said she couldn't do it. I said "Honey, you can do it if you put your mind to it. Don't give up and you will be surprised what you can accomplish" I said.
I watched her push this enormous ball of snow across the lawn laboring with every inch, watching her eyes narrow in determination while she focused her energy into churning this giant ball to the center of our lawn. She exclaimed "Daddy! Look what I made! I did it by myself!"
I was so proud, "If you put your mind to something and you don't give up, you can achieve anything" I said, "Good for you for not giving up."
Moments later she added another piece and I turned to look at what she had made. She fashioned her snowman base into a "snow couch" and the lump of snow off to the left directly across from her is a "snow TV". "Not as big as your TV Daddy, but the picture is kind of fuzzy!"
So, if you have snow or want to make some lasting memories with a snowman of your own, or want to read an awesome book about a snowman, check out The Last Snowman by JC Little.
