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. He thinks it’s the perfect day to build a snowman, but his family decides to head skating instead. On their way to the rink, they see all sorts of vehicles, including a bus that is stuck on the ice.

While I have not read Everything Goes: On Land and the " 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! From Brian Bigger Everything Goes. This is a My First Level early reader with short and simple but fun sentences full of varying punctuation. A great one for the winter months whether your early reader will get snow or not, they can experience it along with Henry in his car ride to go ice skating and ...more
Little Kid Reaction: Review pending.

Big Kid Reaction: This is so much more than an easy reader! I love the idea of sharing it with toddlers and preschoolers to explore the illustrations (counting, colors, objects, cute little birds in hats!), then letting Kindergartners and first graders read and explore for themselves. Many of the illustrations have simple words or letters that complement the text.

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 remember years ago when I was excited to see snow falling. That meant spending time outside doing something fun, like what Henry does in the book--ice skating and building snowmen.

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

This book would have made me happy when I was in the first or second grade.
The books says early reader but I thought it was too hard for beginners.

A fun early reader. Will write up a review later.
I enjoyed Henry's adventure to go skating.
