TUESDAY: The Snowball
A fantastically funny story about a runaway snowball with great illustrations and rhymes!
I have a hard time finding Level 1 reading books that my son will find interesting. I want him to read aloud as much as possible, but when I show him some to try from the library, a lot of times he will say "Nah" and want to look at a Level 3 or 4, which I can read to him, but defeats the purpose of finding things for him to read aloud. The Snowball, though, was a huge hit with both of us. He was able to read it himself, we laughed at the story and the illustrations, and he wanted to read it again on his own as soon as we were done. That, in my mind, is the mark of a great book!
