Little Golden Challenge: Frosty the Snow Man by Annie North Bedford

Little Golden Challenge logo

This year I am rereading all of my family’s Little Golden Books. Titles in the family collection consist primarily of books from the 1940s to 1980s. The first Little Golden Books were published in 1942.

Challenge Book 1: Frosty the Snow Man
Author: Annie North Bedford
Illustrator: Corrine Malvern
Publication Year: 1951

Frosty Cover

Frosty the Snowman first appeared as a song in 1950. Unlike many other adaptations of Frosty, this book tells the story portrayed in the song without using the lyrics or including sheet music.
