Kick Off a Month of Ice Cream with Your Kids
Like most kids books, the main text is relatively simple but it does include challenging words as well. It is set up as though it is the thought process of Joe who is writing back to his grandfather whom he will see later in the summer for a trip. Within the images of each page there is a lot more writing that includes details about Joe's oddly frozen world as well as some of the facts he is learning about ice cream.
Joe seems a bit obsessed with ice cream. His world is crowded with ice cream everywhere. One fun thing we did while reading this was to find the ice cream cones and the ice cream scoops. By the end we talked about if we'd like to live in this same ice cream world as Joe. It was a fun read for everyone. I think older kids could enjoy reading it to younger ones.
Warning: You will want ice cream after reading it.
