Doug sees snow for the first time and wishes with all his might that he could share the experience with his Dad, but he’s far away on a long Navy deployment. He decides to make snowballs and freeze them so they can have a snowball fight when his Dad returns home. So in the freezer snowballs went, as many as he could fit.  He made them big, he made them small.  They were going to be such a hit!  Unfortunately, when his Dad gets home they’re frozen solid.  Doug discovers, however, that you can have even more fun when things don’t go exactly as planned.

I liked the book and I like to have snow ball fights and make angels in the snow as well. Nice story...

This is a wonderful book for any child whose parent is away for any reason, and especially for military children whose parent is deployed. As an added bonus it contains an excellent lesson aimed at helping children realize that things don't have to turn out exactly as planned.
