Book review: Snowy Sunday, by Phyllis Root, illustrated by Helen Craig

Root, Phyllis. Snowy Sunday. Illustrated by Helen Craig. (Bonnie Bumble series.) Candlewick Press, 2015. $16.99. ISBN: 9780-544-23014-9. Gr. 1-3. P7 Q8

Root Snowy SundayAppropriate and relatable for elementary school kids. The fun, cheerful illustrations in pen and watercolor tell the story of a snowy Sunday on a farm. The sounds of the animals and their chattering lend well to both reading aloud and teaching the sounds of consonants. This is a good staple for children’s librarians.

December 2015 review by Devonee Trivett.

[Editor’s note: This gentle, humorous tale of a snowy Sunday on Bonnie Bumble’s farm is the last book in the Bonnie Bumble series.]
