A heartwarming seasonal story with an uplifting message about friendship and having confidence in yourself.

Little Nell's family thinks she's too small to really accomplish anything. But one snowy winter day, while Nell is playing with her forest friends Reindeer, Hare, and Bear Cub, her friends encourage her to build a snowman. Though Nell is unsure of herself at first, with the support and help of her friends, she creates a marvelous snowman. Nell's wondrous creation shows everyone that she IS capable of accomplishing anything she puts her mind to--and that great things often come in "little" packages!


A powerful lesson about self-confidence and a cozy winter treat in one.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Frustrated youngsters will find a champion in Little Nell.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “This funny winter’s tale from Cuyler features a girl who needs a boost of confidence to get past the teasing of her overwhelming. overbearing mother and sisters.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Jane Casserly’s sweet voice champions Nell while voicing the large characters with great bluster. Young listeners will respond to the repetition as Nell and company pat, mat, bat, roll, nudge, kick, and push a fabulous snowman into being. The musical accompaniment underscores the story’s climax as tokens of endearment are bestowed on Nell.”

About the Author
Growing up in a hubbub of creativity, Margery Cuyler has truly mastered the art of storytelling. Her ingenious family of artists, actors, storytellers, and writers made her childhood fascinating and exciting. Adding to the excitement of her bustling New Jersey home were her four cousins, three brothers, and one sister. She spent her days playing common household games and performing plays with her siblings and cousins. Every night she’d drift to sleep to the soothing sounds of her parents reading at her bedside. Margery’s passion for children and literature motivated her to write and edit children’s books. "I think storytelling is an act of love. Children's books are carrying the storytelling for our whole culture, and that is an awesome responsibility."
