Little Sadie's childhood perseverance, at making her beloved snowman last, is to cute to ignore.
Each time Sadie's snowman melts she saves some of him so she can rebuild him with the next snowfall. The days grow warmer between snowfalls, but she is determined and resourceful. Her 'snowman' lasts a long time. Then summer comes, what will she do? For children this is a delightful story about keeping a value, but for adults Sadie and the Snowman is a touching allegory about enduring sentimental values.
