Genre: easy reader picture book
What did you like about the book? It’s wintertime and Mr. Putter & Tabby are a little bored. There are no flowers to tend or berries to pick. So Mr. Putter thinks “What can we do in the wintertime?” He thinks back to when he was a little boy and remembers how much fun he and his friends had sledding! So they decide to find a sled in Mrs. Teaberry’s garage and go sledding! Zeke and Tabby go on a sled together and Mrs. Teaberry & Mr. Putter share another one. They have a lot of fun going down the big hill- so much fun, in fact, that they are exhausted. They go home, take a nice warm bath, eat a snack and have a good night’s sleep. The illustrations are so cute! Seeing Mr. Putter as a child is so hilarious. And Putter wears a sweater to keep warm which is so funny!

Should we (librarians/readers) put this on the top of our “to read” piles? no
