We all like to feel good about ourselves some of the time. Unfortunately, it’s far too easy to feel too good about ourselves all of the time. It is human nature to feel a little bit of pride in a new outfit, a new job, a new accomplishment or award. But there comes a time when pride takes over and that good feeling we have about ourselves turns us into a snob. This is what happened to Snobbity the snowman. He once stood so proud, sporting a fine hat and scarf, a bright orange carrot for a nose and pebbles for his eyes. He even had a monocle on one eye. The Merrigold family who created Snobbity made sure that his carrot nose was made from a fresh picked carrot every day and it always pointed upwards, making Snobbity look very regal and, yes, it’s true, very snobbish. When the Merrigold family moved away, Snobbity’s privileged position deteriorated and he had to learn some valuable lessons, like how to care about others before himself and that looking good didn’t really define the true value of a person, or, in this case, a snowman.

Maria Bardyukova’s charming picture book story, I’m Snobbity Snowman, is a clever approach to teaching valuable life lessons to young readers. Using the chilling beauty of winter and the wily character of a snowman, this story, beautifully illustrated by Quiet Riley Jr., points out the undesirable handicaps of being a snob. Possessions and appearances are smoke and mirrors that will never replace true happiness as the Scrooge of snowmen, Snobbity, slowly discovers. Beautifully told; beautifully illustrated.
