This book follows the Everything Goes books by Biggs, but this time is in a format perfect for very early readers. When Henry wakes up, there is snow on the ground and more falling.

Luckily, there is a tow truck helping the bus get on its way. At the rink, they see a Zamboni and get to skate in the s...more

While I have not read Everything Goes: On Land and the "...in the Air" after getting my hands on this I Can Read! book from the series I think I will have to look for those and the other I Can Read!

Little Kid Reaction: Review pending.

Big Kid Reaction: This is so much more than an easy reader!

Pros: Good story and great illustrations make this a perfect choice for a seasonal easy reader.

This is a fun and colorful book for young kids, especially those who like snow! There isn't much writing, so it makes it easy for beginning readers.

I received a complimentary copy in exchange for my honest opinion.
