Honor book
This story takes place in a snow globe, where a young boy opens the door to look at the snow and his dog runs out the door and disappears. As the boy follows to retrieve his pet, the story includes sound words for all the events that occur around him. (trucks, cars, music, snow crunching, etc.)

This book is written in simple phrases and easy to understand concepts, which make it a good first reader for Kindergarteners and Frist Graders. It would also be a useful tool for teaching sound words, possibly for poetry lessons, in grades 1-3.

Q_Barb Oddly, enough I had to pull this off our library's shelves today for a patron's request and I stopped to look at because I am interested in books that talk about snow. I felt confused by it. Do you think the concept is too abstract for younger readers? It kind of reminded me of the Weisner's books where the reality of what you are seeing shifts. I am going to read it again to apply what you said about the grades it would work and in what ways.
