I enjoyed this book because I like winter. I also enjoyed this book because I like contests. I also enjoyed this book because I liked the part when Henry, Mudge, and Henry's dad got third place in the snowman contest (they made a snowman of Henry's dad painting a chair).

Personal Reaction:I thought this was an excellent book, and I could immediately tell it was a transitional book. The story has plenty of sentences, but they are relatively short with small amounts of dialogue. I also really liked the illustrations, as they were very vivid and definitely helped to tell the story. I definitely enjoyed this book, so I think this is one that a first, second, or third grader would love, so I would keep this book on my classroom shelf.

My son and I both thoroughly enjoyed every book in this series and were excited to find out what would happen as we started each one. Because my son was between 5-6 years old (he's an advanced reader) at the time, he easily identified with Henry and loved Mudge because (1) he desperately wanted a dog, and (2) Mudge's goofiness was endearing AND hilarious.

This book was a very fun and entertaining book. The vocabulary wasn't crazy, yet it was just enough to make things funny. The illustrations made it easier to really understand what the whole story was about. They were fun and animated which makes them really interesting to look at, and there was a lot to look at too. This story is easy to relate to and I am sure it is the same way for many people. Building snowmen and having a contest on which one was the best, is something most, if not all chil ...more

I've 'tagged' this book as a 'Father's Day" book although it takes place in Jan and in the middle of tons of snow. It's a special time that Henry spends with his Dad having fun together.

Henry and Mudge want to enter a snowman building contest. And with the encouragement of Henry's dad they do enter with a very unique snowman.

I love Henry and Mudge books. I think they all remind me a little bit of Denace the Menace. But i do like the way Rylant writes a special relationship between a boy and his dog. Little boys always take adventures with their dogs and this series makes that come to life for the reader. Great easy-readers for boys!

Another fun book in the "Henry and Mudge" series by Cynthia Rylant and Suçie Stevenson. Our girls really love these books and they are great for beginning readers. The snow theme for this book is fun, especially for those of us who live where there is no snow.

Henry and Mudge are back for a delightful winter story. Readers learn the names of several breeds of dogs when Mudge seeks out friends in the park. A nice story of father and son and dog spending quality time together.

MCL. I thought the book was crazy because I just like it.

Notes:
My son liked a handful of these books when he had just learned to read, but they weren't favorites like frog and toad or mr. putter books
