My Snowman, Paul (Snowman Paul Book 1)
Yossi Lapid, author
On a snowy winter day, Dan builds himself a nice snowman named Paul. Snowman Paul wants to play and Dan hesitates because his friend Bill is watching and Bill thinks snowmen are dumb... But Paul is no ordinary snowman and he doesn’t take no for an answer. Dan and Paul become best friends and, together, they embark on a series of exciting adventures. Dan’s life will never be the same. Written in rhyme, the Snowman Paul book series celebrates the magic of winter through the evolving friendship between a young boy and his mischievous snowman. Whimsical and humorous, the stories touch upon serious themes such as friendship, peer pressure, family relationships and values. Vivid and expressive illustrations complement the narrative and bring the stories alive.

5.0 out of 5 starsDestined to become classics!

By Nancy Baker on November 2, 2016Format: Kindle Edition

I've read the first two books in the series and I am excited to recommend them. The stories are whimsical and clever, the writing engaging, and the illustrations beautiful. Even adults will be charmed! And beneath the charm are timeless lessons about honesty, friendship and taking risks in life. The books may look sweet, but don't be fooled. These are not dull saccharine stories.In fact, I believe these are destined to become classics.
I enthusiastically recommend sharing My Snowman, Paul and Snowman Paul and the Winter Olympics with any children you know (or adults who dream like children!).

5.0 out of 5 starsCharming Children's Book Guaranteed to Delight Young Readers

My Snowman, Paul

By Yossi Lapid

Illustrations by Joanna Pasek

A little boy named Dan looks out his window at a big snowfall. His mom suggests that he go outside and build a snowman. Dan complains that his friend Bill says they are really dumb. Dan goes out anyway and builds a huge snowman but grows bored and
hungry and turns to go inside before putting its head on it.

The snowman calls out sternly, demanding its head to be put where it belongs. A talking snowman? Oh man! The snowman says his name is Paul. After that the day is filled with fun---oh what great adventures the two of them have. Poor Bill has none.

This delightful story done in beautiful colors which appeal to young children, is perfect as a 'read to' book for toddlers, as well as a first reader for ages from 4-6 years old. The illustrations are perfect and eye-catching for this age group and cheerful enough to make adults smile too.

Author Yossi Lapid skillfully writes in rhyming sentences which further enhances the cuteness of the story with its near perfect
meter. This book is perfect for the upcoming holidays, as stocking stuffers and gifts. Readers enjoying 'The Snowman, Paul,' will want to check out author's Lapid's other books, including 'Snowman Paul Saves Kate's Birthday.' Little ones will thank you. I know mine did.

5.0 out of 5 starsA very clever book that children will enjoy

By Israel Drazin TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on November 1, 2016Format: Kindle Edition

Yossi Lapid tells a heart-warming tale about friendship with lovely child-friendly drawings by Joanna Pasek, a perfect joint venture that children will enjoy. It is a good, humorous story, written in rhyme, with lots of drawings without dialogue that picture the action in the tale. The story has a good message about friendship.
Dan’s friend is a snowman named Paul (with a carrot for a nose) who hopes to have fun with Dan. It all began when Dan went out to play in the snow and was mocked for doing so by his neighbor Bill. Dan ignores Bill and builds a snowman. He begins to go home when he hears the snowman suggesting that they have fun together. Dan is hesitant because he does not want to be mocked again by Bill. Dan agrees to play with Snowman Paul and they have a great time together.
“And, then, we raced and hugged and all.
And, now, my new best friend is Paul.”
