Everyone in Freezeland knows that a snowman always wears a hat, but one day a snowman named Dmitri arrives in town with a bare head. Dmitri is sad because he lost his hat on his journey. Little Snowman Stan lends Dmitri his beloved blue plaid cap for a couple of days, but Dmitri does not want to give it back. In order to get his cap back, Stan must enlist the help of his other snowman friends to teach Dmitri the importance of sharing. This charming winter tale explores the common childhood issue of learning to share with appealing imagery and engaging language.

MY FIRST ONE STAR. That's nothing to be happy about. :( I have read some TERRIBLY written books in my day....but this one takes the cake---three pages in and I'm already wondering when is it going to end. Anyway, I chalk it up to a bad translation. :)Pretty pictures though :) Read full review

The illustrations are cute and I like the fact that the snowmen didn't shun the hatless newcomer, but the rest of the story is really frustrating. Sharing does not mean letting someone straight up keep something you let him borrow--that's called stealing! Read full review
