The Snowman and the Sun is a stop in World Kidlit Month’s ‘Around the World in 10 Books’

It’s an odd time of year to be talking about snowmen, but there’s exciting news for The Snowman and the Sun! Susan Taghdis and Ali Mafakheri’s playful picture book about the water cycle has been featured as a stop in ‘Around the World in 10 Books‘, a selection of international children’s picture books chosen by the World Kidlit Month initiative.

Read what they have to say about the book below!


Iranian children’s literature is a site of wonderful creative foment and development, and those looking for more should check out Tiny Owl. A snowman might seem an improbable topic for Iranian kid lit, but this charming picture book, rendered from a snowman’s point of view, is filled with tiny beautiful touches: a bumblebee riding a bicycle, a cat in a variety of poses, and the ice cream that appears on every page.
