Welcome to LET'S BUILD A SNOWMAN! I hope your child enjoys this "Online
Storybook" as much as my two-year-old son, Michael does. If so, I would
appreciate a contribution in the amount of $5.00 sent to:

Please feel free to include any comments and suggestions.

This is my first attempt to create shareware for the pre-schooler. I am an
ex-programmer at home with one child and one more on the way! I am having
a great time writing software for my son and hope to release more of it into
the shareware market very soon. My goal is to create software which will
introduce very young children to the world of computers in a manner which is
both fun and slightly educational.

LET'S BUILD A SNOWMAN is very easy to use. My two-year-old can easily flip
the pages of this "book" by pressing the spacebar (all other keys are "dead").
When compared to other "books" you might find in a bookstore, LET'S BUILD A
SNOWMAN offers several advantages: (1) a chance to use the computer (kids
love that), (2) a bit of animation and music (not found in paper books), and
(3) "pages" that cannot rip or be chewed. When compared to similar paper
books, I hope that you will find the $5.00 registration fee to be very
modest. In addition, registered owners will receive information on other
"Online Storybooks" as it becomes available.

To begin LET'S BUILD A SNOWMAN, set the prompt to the disk drive where the
software resides and type SNOWMAN. Press the return/enter key and the
story will begin. From that point on, the only key that works is the
spacebar. Use it to turn the "pages" of the book. MY SON, MICHAEL AND I

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read:
