Frosty the Snowman (Frosty the Snowman) by Diane MuldrowIm so glad Im almost done with December. My plan to read at least one holiday book a day hasnt gone so well. Todays book is one of the reasons why this month has been such a painful one when it comes to reading.
The problem here is that the story is condescending and very, very juvenile. Its aimed at ages 2 to 5? It almost sounds like it was written by a five-year-old in places... like when Santa tells the villain to write I am very sorry for what I did to Frosty a hundred bazillion times or he wont get any presents. Way to be specific, Santa. (Also, the villain wanted the magic hat because he thought it would make him rich. He gave up way too easily when threatened by Santa. Im pretty sure a magic hat would be worth far more than whatever piece of mass-produced crap Santa would leave in his stocking.)
The premise here is pretty flawed, too, and I dont like the way the book scoffs at science (implying that the North Poles temperatures are always below freezing, or that blowing December wind over a puddle of water will turn it into snow) and shows children doing dangerous things (like jumping into refrigerated box cars and riding the rails).
The story is pretty weak, and the illustrations just seem to mimic the TV special. Theres not much here that I can recommend.

Frosty the Snow Man came to town one bright, cold winter's day. The first real snow of the winter had fallen the night before. In the morning, out came the children, and they started to roll snowballs. Round and round the snowy yard they rolled the snowballs. Soon they had two fine big ones.
