I purchased this book on my own and was not required to write a review. Therefore all comments and opinions are entirely my own.


In The Magic of Friendship Snow, a lonely little girl bravely takes on the challenge of finding friends, and she does just that with the help of an adorable little snowman.

JoJo and Puddles are super cute and their story is very sweet. Honestly, I wanted this book simply because of the illustrations. They are absolutely gorgeous!

The story is simple and easy to understand. Kids are not only going to fall in love with Puddles the Snowman, but will also learn from JoJo that to make friends, they need to be brave and try to be a friend. I also loved that towards the end, JoJo took what she learned from Puddles and taught the same lesson to another friend so that he, too, would know how to make friends.

Overall, I think this a very cute book and I recommend it for ages 3-6. I give it 5 out of 5 stars.
