Book Summary of Little Daughter Of The Snow

(Paperback)

Childless and sad, an old Russian man and his wife watch the village children playing in the snow. One day they decide to make their own little snow girl. To their surprise, she comes alive! But Little Daughter of the Snow soon tells them that she isn't quite like other children — she plays outside all day and night, and eats ice porridge for breakfast. Will the couple love her enough to make her stay? This poignant version of the classic Russian tale, with atmospheric illustrations by Tom Bower, carries a timeless message about the true value of love.
