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
Appropriate 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.
