Rating: 1- 5 (5 is excellent or a Starred review) 4
Genre: Picture Book
What did you like about the book? In this third title featuring Andy and Sandy, they set out to explore the snow. Andy is smaller and a bit skeptical, while Sandy is determined to show him all the fun they can have. Andy says : “Snow is very wet and VERY COLD.” Sandy replies, “But snow is lots of fun!” Eventually, Andy is won over as they build a snowman, go sledding and make snow angels. The final double page spread features the two inside enjoying cups of cocoa with marshmallows in front of a fireplace. The illustrations in dePaola’s signature style complement the warmth of the story. The text is made up of short sentences and repeated words which make it a great choice for a very early reader.
Anything you didn’t like about it? No
To whom would you recommend this book? This is one for fans of the previous two books in the Andy & Sandy series. This is a fun winter choice for a very early reader.
