Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Gus is a rhinoceros, so it is a little surprising to see him all bundled up on the cover in scarf and boots putting a hat on a snowman. The story opens with Gus looking out the window and seeing the snow. He wants to play, but Mom and Dad are both too busy, so outside he goes and decides that he will make a friend. First he creates a big snowball for the feet, then another for the body and finally a third one for the head. He gets a little help from his mother who gives him some peas to create the eyes and his friend Ned (who looks like one nerdy giraffe) who brings some sticks to make the arms. "Snow Boy" gets a hat from Gus and a pair of glasses from Ned, but that is not the end of the story. Kids will enjoy this easy to read tale with amusing drawings that provide a solid foundation for working out any difficult words or concepts in the text. A Pre level 1 book in the "Scholastic Reader" series which means it contains thirty to one hundred words and has a word count of seventy-four. The Lexile rating is BR and the Guided Reading level is F. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
