    1 thought on “The Snow Child: A Russian Folktale”

    1. This story really touched me. Like the elderly couple, my husband and I were unable to have children and we waited 8 long years to adopt our daughter, Katherine. She is now 20 but it feels just like yesterday that we were driving to the Adoption Agency to pick up our 10 day old daughter.The Snow Child is a wonderful story to use as a springboard to discuss the importance of family and that there are so many unique ways to be a family!

    2. I read this book to my daughter and she absolutely enjoyed it! The pictures in the book are very pretty. It's a great book to read to the children around the holidays. The Snow Child is a heart-warming story. About an older couple who want a child of their own, so they make a snow child one winter. Such a beautiful story.

    3. This is a beautifully illustrated version of the Russian folk tale, and I enjoyed it very much. I think the concepts, about wanting a child so much, and being willing to accept one just part of the year, are way too difficult for a child to comprehend, but as an adult who once wanted a child desperately, I could relate quite well.Read this book again, while reading The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey, and really enjoyed remembering the Russian folk tale as it is described in the novel.

    4. The above edition isn't the one I have. I have a1978 scholastic printing illustrated by Leon Shtainmets. I had been looking for this book for a while and was so excited to finally get a copy of it. I love it. It's a beautiful sweet folk tale.

    5. Our LDS Relief Society Book Club is reading the The Snow Child for our February book. While finding info on it, I found the book on which it was based--This Russian folktale. It finally arrived at the library via inter-library loan. It is a quick read---a DELIGHTFUL quick read. The story is not only wonderful, but the illustrations were, too. This is a book I might want to buy.

    6. Let me start off by saying that this was one of my favorite books when I was right around the age of my youngest. It's short and sweet, but The Snow Child by Freya Littledale is also magical and wonderful and just the perfect story for a little girl to jump in to.I won a gift card to in a giveaway recently (thank you PUYB Promotions!) and used it to complete a collection of books that I've been trying to complete for some time, buy a couple of movies I've always wanted to watch with my girls, a [...]

    7. The Snow Child is a Russian Folklore about an old couple who were unhappy because they had no children. One winter, after watching the children in the town build snowmen, they decided to build themselves a Snow Child, a little girl they could pretend was real. But when they were finished, the old woman kissed the Snow Child and she sprang to life. The couple was finally happy because they had a child of their own.

    8. Snow child is about an elderly couple that wanted a child. They create a child out of snow that comes to life after their loving kiss. All the children in the town and her parents fall in love with her. As the weather gets warmer they have to say their goodbyes. The good thing about this story is she comes back every winter with the first snowflake fall. The book is magical and full of snowy illustrations on each page. The story is a wonderful Russian folklore written by Freya LittleDale. Someti [...]

    9. I remember this book well from when I was a child. I was excited to see that we had it on our bookshelf. It has been handed down from family - or it may even be the one that I kept through the years. I wish I knew for sure.My version of the book came with a cassette and I would listen to it often.Now that I am older, and have a child of my own - I do appreciate the story more. If I were rating it - I would give it a 3 instead of 4 because of the bittersweet narrative. But - my daughter loved the [...]

    10. A elderly couple wish they had a child. So they go out in the snow and build a snow child. The old man kisses the snow girl and she becomes alive. The are all very happy and she stays with them all winter, but when the last of the snow melts, she has to go to where the cold places are. The elderly couple are very sad and thought they would never see their snow child again. The next winter at the first snow, they look out the window and she is standing in their yard. They are all very happy and n [...]

    11. This was one of my favorite books as a child. Unfortunately, it was in the box of books ruined by a water leak, and my copy has been lost. In this retelling of "The Snow Maiden," an elderly childless couple builds a little girl out of snow, and she comes to life, but being a child of snow, she cannot stay with them forever. It is bittersweet and beautiful. I read the original edition with Leon Shtainmets's illustrations. They gave the story an authentic Russian feel. There is a newer edition wit [...]

    12. One of our goals in preschool is to expand the knowledge of the children in our classroom and books are a good way to do this as we read a wide variety of topics and types of books. The Snow Child: A Russian Folktale is a good book to talk about folktales, the country of Russia and snow. Reading favorite books many times with a discussion of each topic with different readings helps the children to organize their thoughts and learn about all the different topics rather than cover them all in one [...]

    13. As a child, I had two fairy tale books, and I avidly read them many times over. Of course, I had my favorites, which I read even more often. This story wasn't in my books, and I never saw it in the library, so I didn't read it until I started to read aloud to my nieces and nephews.This version starts very traditionally, "Once upon a time in a faraway village, there lived an old man and his wife." What follows is a wonderfully fun story with art by Lavallee that makes the story itself come alive. [...]

    14. This story really touched me. Like the elderly couple, my husband and I were unable to have children and we waited 8 long years to adopt our daughter, Katherine. She is now 21; but it feels just like yesterday, that we were driving to the Adoption Agency, to pick up our 10 day old daughter.The Snow Child is a wonderful story to use as a springboard to discuss the importance of family; and there are so many unique ways to be a family!

    15. I had never heard of this story. As I read reviews, I found many people loved it as children. It is a Russian folk tale that the author Eowyn Ivey mentioned in the Q and A at the back of her novel, "The Snow Child." The copy I have is a used copy from . It is 5x5. Quite tiny. I didn't pay attention to the size when I got it. I think I want to try and find a bigger copy. The illustrations are quite lovely and it is a sweet story.

    16. This is one of my favorite childrens' stories from when I was little. A woman who cannot have children goes outside one winter morning and decides to build a little girl made of snow to ease her loneliness. She kisses the snow child's lips and- lo and behold- the child comes to life! Not only is the story charming, but the pictures are gorgeous and enhance the story, building character and depth into this seemingly simple kids' book.

    17. Beautifully told and illustrated, this is the story of an old couple who longs for a child. When no child comes, they make their own out of ice and snow, and with a kiss the child comes alive. The snow child becomes a favorite of the village children, but when warm weather comes she must go away. This saddens the couple, but as soon as the cold returns the child, too returns.

    18. It's sad when a person can't learn to be content instead of mourning for what he can't have. It boils down to choosing either selfishness or choosing the kind of love that helps others which is the only kind of love that brings fulfillment and true joy. This fable celebrates selfishness and discontentment. Neither are character traits that should be encouraged in our children.

    19. I got this from a scholastic book order when I was in elementary school, and always loved the melancholy folktale about a childless couple who made a creature out of snow that they could love. It does have a beautiful ending!

    20. This book is an all time favorite to many growing up. It tells a cute story of a couple creating a girl out of snow and she really comes to life. Throughout the story the journey unfolds of the snow child.

    21. Found this in the box of old children's books (although my cover is much better). I clearly remember this from my childhood and remember loving it. Just as sweet and cute today -- except for maybe the fact that the "child" disappears during the warm months and upsets the parents. Nice story.

    22. At my school, we have a library and in elementary I would check it out at least 5 times a year. I love it!!!!!
