The Snow Lady

Written by Shirley Hughes

Suitable for: 7-11 years (Key stage 2)

Sponsored by: Lifeline 4 Kids

Available braille grades: Grade 2

Sam loves playing in the street with her dog Mick and her friend Barney, despite Mrs Dean’s complaining. ‘Mrs Mean’ Barney calls her – and that’s what he writes by the snow lady they build in front of her house. But is Mrs Dean really cold-hearted?

On the front cover we have a picture of Sam and Barney putting the finishing touches to the snow lady they are building. Sam has lovely long curly blond hair. Her dog, Mick is watching her place a blue hat on the snow lady's head and Barney stands with an armful of old clothes ready to dress her.
Turn over the front cover.
On the right-hand side you will find a different kind of page made of stiff plastic. This is your first special feely picture. Using both hands feel all over the shape of this feely picture. It is a picture of a snowman waiting to be dressed up. He has stones for his eyes, nose and mouth and his arms are made from sticks.
