SNEEZY THE SNOWMAN SUMMARY
Sneezy the Snowman was cold! In fact, he was sneezing and freezing! Sneezy decided that he would drink some hot cocoa to warm up. But as soon as he drank the cocoa, he turned into a puddle on the ground. Thankfully, his friends were there to help. They rebuilt Sneezy and he was brand new. A friend even offered to share his winter cap with Sneezy.
Even with the winter cap on, Sneezy was cold! This time he decided that he would get into a hot tub to warm up, but that caused him to melt, too! Sneezy’s friends were there and ready to rebuild him again. This time, they decided to let Sneezy wear a warm winter scarf. Again and again Sneezy tried to warm up when he was cold, and each time he melted. His friends continued to share clothing until he was wearing a hat, scarf, and coat. With all the new clothing on, Sneezy was suddenly too hot. His friends suggested he eat some ice cream and that did the trick. He was finally feeling great, not too hot and not too cold!
