It was nearly Christmas. Katie woke up and found that the world was white and magical.
– Snow,she shouted, snow for Christmas.
She ran outside and danced in the snow. Her brother Eddie came out too.
They made a big round snowball and a small one. They put them together and made a huge snowman. On Christmas Eve they looked at the snowman. He waved at them. He was alive!
Hello, he said, it’s Christmas. Would you like a present?
Yes please! The snowman waved his arms. Silver crystal snowflakes filled the sky. It was so beautiful.
We must give you a present too, said Katie. They gave the snowman a carrot for a nose, a scarf for his neck, and a hat for his head.
Happy Christmas! they said.
The snow stopped and the sun came out. The snowman started to melt.
Goodbye, he said. Build me again next year.
