Spirit of the Snowpeople is the story of a small village of north woods folk who brighten the long gloomy days of winter for their children by building amazingly detailed and lifelike snow sculptures. Soon visitors come to see the snowpeople and find themselves touched by the villagers’ gentle goodwill and simple hospitality. When spring melts the snowpeople the visitors learn how to keep the spirit of the snowpeople alive in their world and their hearts all year.
On the surface, Snowpeople is an entertaining and uplifting children’s story that captures young imaginations with beautiful illustrations. However, its deeper message reminds us how much easier it is to walk life’s journey when we surrender to the passing of each of life’s “seasons” and find ease in its gentle rhythms.
