Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Reminiscent of the Dick and Jane readers, this book has a very limited vocabulary. Joe is wakened by his mother to a snowy day. Once he is bundled up nice and warm he is off to play in the wonderful snow. He makes a snowman, rolls around (presumably just for fun), makes snowballs that he throws at his dog, and rides his sled. Joe seems likeable enough although his oversized galoshes make one wonder how he can move about. The blurb at the end of the story introduces the author and illustrator and this is followed by several activities to reinforce the lessons in communication, counting, and classifying. First there is a rebus rhyme, a vocabulary exercise, and a counting quiz. There is a list of the fifteen words that make up the story. This "Rookie Ready to Learn-Seasons and Weather" series supports the emergent or beginning reader. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
