Frosty The Snow Man, by Annie Bedford, illustrated by Corinne Malvern, published by Golden Press, publication date: 1987.

This is a children's fantasy book. All the children are out of school for a snow day. The children form three snow balls to form the body and head of a snow man. They give it the name Frosty the Snow Man. The children give Frosty a button nose, corncob pipe, two coals for eyes, floppy galoshes, a scarf, and red mittens to complete his design. All of a sudden, a gust of wind br
This book is about Frosty the Snowman and how he came to life when some children built him and put a magic hat on his head. Frosty and the children had the most fun days together, they were magical. And one day Frosty disappears, but the children know that he will be back someday.
I have never really liked the story of Frosty the Snowman. And this book with its illustrations, were almost creepy. The children looked like normal children, but Frosty looked like a snowman from a horror movie...

I loved this book when I was a kid. Even now I enjoy reading this on occasion. It's a sweet kids book about a magical snowman who helps kids have some wintry fun! A great book to read during the winter, especially at Christmas, and it would certainly be enjoyed!

Frosty the snowman comes to life one day and has a wonderful time playing with the children, disappearing when it becomes too warm, and promising to return.

Fun to read a book from my childhood to the kids. The library copy is old enough that it lacks a UPC symbol. Did not realize the song preceded the book and the movie.

Great kindergarten - first grade read...this is an older version but the story is the same...the pictures are tight and classic and I feel they serve to get the listeners to focus more on the story where as the newer version I find they focus more on the may just be me...

A fun and entertaining book to share with younger students. This is the story of Frosty the Snow Man and it is a fun way to have a relaxing and entertaining read aloud during a down time throughout the winter. A nice resource to have avaiable in the classroom.

This Little Golden Book was an absolute favorite of mine, growing up in the 1950's. I grew up in New England and it was very exciting waiting for a big snowfall. While waiting, we could always dream about Frosty.
My sister and I had this in our (mostly Little Golden Book) library when we were kids. We read it all year long, but it was especially popular at Christmas time. That cover sure brings me back.

The pictures have a very retro look of the kind found in basal readers that I read as a first-grader in the early 60s. The words are in story form rather than the lyrics of the famous song.

I think this is a story for children of all ages. This is a tale that we have heard since we were young. I think this would be a good book to incorporate into a class around Christmastime.
This is the edition that I had as a child. I don't remember seeing it since we moved. I'm going to have to look in our storage for all of these books I keep realizing are "missing".
I love this fun vintage book the artwork takes me back to when I was little. After reading the book, it makes me wan to go listen to the song.

the illustration by Corinne Malvern takes me back 20+ years in moments. The story is fantastic but the artwork makes me want to step back in time.

A classic children's book that has been passed down through the generations---this fact alone attests to its timelessness.

Love the 50's illustrations and the little Golden book format from even my childhood in Finland we had little Golden books!

A nostalgic "Frosty" read with illustrations from the 50's life. What I remember of Frosty the snowman in my childhood.

Who doesn’t remember Frosty? As a kid, I had hundreds of Little Golden books, and this was always a fun one!

The instant classic Frosty the Snow Man is one of my favorite books to read around the Christmas season.
This book contained very pertaining information on a snowman that comes to life using a magical hat.
