My thoughts…from Librarian, Nancy Messmore!

The Great Snowball Escapade is an entertaining read for emergent readers that includes a lesson about compassion and judging others. Because of that lesson, I would suggest that teachers in first through third grade use this as a read-aloud in class. In addition, the author recommends this book for children ages 6-8. I think a set of these books would be appropriate in second grade classrooms for group assignments and discussion. Public libraries might consider including a box of these books for loan to schools. As a librarian, I would add this book to pathfinders about bullying and friendship.
Aside from the lesson inherent in the story, I always had a hard time finding winter-themed chapter books that kids wanted to read after the holidays when I worked in an elementary school library. This book fits the bill perfectly for a display of snowy books that early elementary students will want to read.
By the way, J.D. Holiday also illustrated the book. For early chapter book readers, illustrations not only break up the text (nice transition from picture books) but provide context clues for the story. Holiday’s illustrations work very well with the text.

As promised, J.D. Holiday has provided me with an autographed copy of The Great Snowball Escapade plus two autographed bookmarks! This set would make a great holiday gift for a child or teacher (…or librarian…).
