THE SNOWMAN’S WISH is the story of a snowman who so loves the sights, smells, touch and sounds of the children playing in the park around him that he wishes he could stay forever. When springtime melts the snow and the snowman vanishes, a beautiful flower grows in his place, which the children understand to be the snowman’s legacy.
