Children's Literature - Sheilah EganAfter locating his missing red boot, the brother joins his sister playing in the falling snow. They make a snow person and build a snow house before they discover "spots" in the snow. Readers will recognize that they are on the trail of tiny footprintsfootprints that belong to a little white kitten that they dub "Snowbaby." The cartoon illustrations are dated with mom wearing a dress and heels for housework, and the three characters (mom, boy, and girl) may not seem relevant for today's children; but, with that said, the beginning-to-read vocabulary necessary to build confidence in early readers makes this book suitable for any reader. Needless to say, the children are shown taking the kitten home to mom's warm kitchen and she smiles, welcoming "Snowbaby" to the family. Back matter includes Phonemic Awareness Phonics, Vocabulary Fluency, Echo Reading, Text Comprehension, and a listing of the 50 words used in the story. This title is part of the "Beginning to Read" series, and includes a "Dear Caregiver" note with tips for pre-reading as well as encouragement for "making reading fun."
