In Charity Kountz's book Jason, Lizzy and the Snowman Village, Jason and Lizzy are homesick for their friends and life in Chicago. Their family recently moved to Texas and they want something of their old life back; so they wished upon a star for snow. The next morning the ground was covered with a thick blanket of beautiful white snow. While playing in the snow, Jason and Lizzy wandered away from their home and into a special place where snowmen are alive; it is a place where Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus live along with Jack Frost, Morty the Snowman, Jonah the Penguin,and Gary the Turkey. Jason and Lizzy accept a special task that could save Christmas for all the girls and boys of the world.
I love this story. Jason, Lizzy and the Snowman Village is a delightful read for preschool and early elementary students. Author Charity Kountz offers readers a delightful tale that will be enjoyed by children for years to come. The pace is brisk, the plot is imaginative, and the characters are endearing. It is very difficult to write children’s books because the author must write on the audience’s level, which in this case is between the ages of 2 and 8. The author has successfully written a book that will entice younger children and elementary children. Many adults will also enjoy reading this book. I suspect this book will become a Christmas tradition in many families. The theme of forgiveness is perfect for the Christmas season. Jason, Lizzy and the Snowman Village is a breath of fresh air in the genre of children’s literature.
