I read this to grade 2 students and they loved the snow pictures. I told them some blizzard stories having lived in Central and Northern Minnesota. The story follows two grandpas who were out in the blizzard and one sought shelter at a home while another found a barn. It would be interesting to pair this book with the nonfiction book, Blizzard by Jim Murphy, which gives more facts and details about the storm as well as great photos. I would like to have a discussion with grade 4 students and make a lesson with both of these books. Also, it is 90 degrees outside right now - maybe I should be reading it in the winter.
