About the Book:
A snowflake was moving around in the air. It said to itself: “Where do I have to go?” It went to a park and sat on a see-saw. The see-saw told it: “How nice you are! But what a shame that you are light to this extent and you can’t play with me.” Again the snowflake told itself: “Where do I have to go?” It went and sat on a flower. The flower told it: “How beautiful you are but what a shame that when the sun shines on you, you will be thawed.” Again the snowflake told itself: “Where do I have to go?” A snowman was standing on the grasses of a land. It did not have a nose and instead, it had a big carrot on its face. The snowflake moved round and round on the snow-covered lawn until it became a small snowball. It jumped up, pulled down the carrot nose of the snowman and sat on its place. The snowman got happy and said: “What a pretty small nose. Lucky me! Now, I am a real snowman.”
