The snowman stood alone... but only for a short time.
"They have eaten everything... even the carrot nose," whispered the little sister peeking out from behind the evergreens.
"Let's put out more seeds and corn before they come back," encouraged the brother. "The animals will never know we were here."
"How long will we feed them?" she asked.
"For a long, long time," he replied. "After the snow has gone and the snowman has melted away, until the frogs start to sing and the trees grow new leaves."

We don't have any snow on the ground at the moment, but I am wishing for a winter wonderland. I love snow and making snowmen... and would love it even more if a snowman of mine attracted the attention of some wildlife like the one in this story! How about you?
