Page turner with great illustrations Jun 13, 2006
Reviewed by Irene Watson for Reader Views (6/06)
My first response when I started reading award winning "The Snowman in the Moon" was - "what age is this book for?" I then looked at the cover and noted it was of ages 2-8, and the "inner child in all of us." That's it; it grasped the attention of my "inner child" immediately.
This is a sweet story of two children living in Woodstream County. It hadn't snowed in the county for years and everyone wished for a huge snowfall. One December evening two children look up in the sky and saw the clouds forming like a snowman, and as they looked further, they saw a face of a snowman in the moon. In all the excitement they told the people in their town of what they saw.
No one believed them - there was no snow in the forecast. The "sign" that the two children had was discounted as childhood dreams. However, the children believed it was a real snowman in the moon, and they knew deep inside that it would snow.
As the community slept through the night, the snowman had work to do. The next morning as the children and the people in the town awakened, they found their wish had come true. It had snowed.
"The Snowman in the Moon" is a page turner for any child. The illustrations, done by the author, are very effective. One can spend time on each page enjoying the characters, scenery, and actions - certainly an added feature to this book. I give Stephen Heigh a "high five" on this one.
From Belief to Reality May 14, 2006
Award winning artist and illustrator Stephen Heigh has created this beautiful story for children ages two through eight. This is a story about believing. This heartwarming story is brilliantly illustrated with scenes from "Woodstream County."
Colorful pictures accompany the delightful story of two children wishing for snow. A quick glimpse of a snowman in the moon gives them hope. They alert the townspeople of their "vision" and dream of building a twenty foot snowman.
Doubtful but hoping the people of the community pray that the children's dreams will be fulfilled. During the night, as though by magic, Woodstream County had the largest snowfall of their history.
The next day all the people came together to build a large snowman. When evening fell and the moon came out, the snowman in the moon smiled down for all the people to see. Their unseen hope had become a reality.
This delightful book makes a excellent gift and will capture the attention of child and parent alike, as hope is instilled and the unseen comes true. Enchanting!
Great holiday book! Nov 18, 2005
This is a fun straightforward feel-good holiday kids book. With too many ironic, sour, and negative books aimed at kids (yes even holiday books) the Snowman in the Moon really stands out. They see it when they believe it! I loved it!
