This story is heartwarming and tender. As in all of Yossi Lapid’s books there is always an important moral to the story for children to learn. In this case Paul thinks that want he really wants is to be a referee. He gives it his all and sets aside his friends for a while. But then he discovers that he would rather be with his friends. Dan welcomes him back with love and kindness. This is a sensational story about the importance of friendship, being a good friend and being true to yourself.
The illustrations are beautiful and vivid with a softness to them. The size of the characters is big and perfect for young children. I read this story to my granddaughters and they loved it and had me read it again and again.
I love Yossi Lapid’s Snowman Paul’s stories. They teach young children simple yet valuable lessons. The books themselves are charming and sweet. And I do love the illustrations.
I’m looking forward to reading the next Snowman Paul book to my eager grandchildren.
I highly recommend that parents and relatives pick up a copy of Snowman Paul Returns to the Winter Olympics and read it to the children in their lives. They will love it and thank you for it.
