Toys Meet Snow is a wonderful story of friendship, exploration, and adventure. When their little girl goes away on winter vacation, a stuffed buffalo, stingray, and a rubber ball experience their first snowfall. Each character has a clearly defined personality, and they all compliment each other. The buffalo is curious, the stingray is poetic, and the rubber ball loves books and knows lots of facts.

As they venture outside and discover snow, the friends learn what snow is as well as how to enjoy its beauty. This book melds together the three personalities into a delightful story that warms your heart.
