After a wintry mix of snow and love, two icy mounds of snow come to life with a bark, a wiggle and a wag. The wonder of childhood is born in this frisky snowpup named Frostbite. Children will be enchanted by the artistry of Robb Mommaerts, whose illustrations perfectly capture the magic of this imaginative picture book. Told in rhyme by a little boy whose dream comes true, this tale will warm the heart of young readers and any parent who remembers wishing for a dog of their very own. So that’s the truth amidst the snow— As day turned into night, I found a dog to call my own. I’m glad I caught Frostbite.
What do you do when mom won't let you have a dog? Get creative of course!
This bright-eyed energetic little boy does just that. All bundled up to face the chilly elements he hears a "woof" in the snow and gets to work. Soon his dream of having his very own dog comes true. He spends the rest of the day playing with his new friend but, when mom calls him to come inside he doesn't know what to do. What will become of his frosty friend?
Frostbite is an enchanting wintry treat that will capture the hearts of children and parents alike. This rhythmic arctic tale inspires wintertime fun that is sure to put a smile on little ones faces. The illustrations are vibrant and the use of a variety of blues effectively creates the crisp winter adventure that is unfolding.
