Sweet heartwarming story with beautiful illustrations of a sweet snowman with a big heart. No reading just lovely pictures. All ages would love this book. Paperback and a great price from Target.
Favorite movie from when I was a kid in the 80's!

This is a great book for younger kids who don't read yet because there are no words! They can sit and "read" the whole book. You can even youtube the short film from 1982 (do the longer version with the intro!)
