If you find a free hour here and there in the busy Christmas season, then maybe it would be a good idea to relax by crocheting the snowman – or sit down in a cozy armchair, read the story with your family and forget for a while everything around you.
Here’s a little preview of the story:
It was the middle of winter and the snow had been falling for days. The earth was covered in glistening snow and the children in the city built a snowman
in the city park. They played the whole afternoon with him.
They put a cap on his head and wrapped a scarf around his neck and pushed in a carrot for a nose.
Then they danced around him singing songs and laughing. When it started to get dark, the children had to go home and a silence fell around the little snowman.
He was sad because he had had so much fun that afternoon and now he was lonely. After a while a dog came by. But the dog only lifted his leg and peed on him.
“Hey, what did you do that for?” asked the little snowman.
