The BIG Snowball is about a boy who makes a snowball and it gets carried away by the wind and ends up landing in an ice cream cone that the boy eats as a treat!

The story has flash cards with the book. The words are on one side and pictures of the words on the other side. The story does not spell out these words, rather it uses the picture instead, so that the child only sees the word on the flashcard. I guess it could be engaging to a beginning reader, but I found it distracting. ( )

Genre: Realistic fiction
Media: oil paint
Age Appropriateness: Primary
Review:This book is a good example of realistic fictin because it could happen. This is the story of a little boy who is making a snowball and he throws it and the wind takes it on a journey over peoples heads, through traffic and right into a store. The book combined words and pictures so that the children are learning the words and the meaning of the pictures in reference to the sentence. ( )

Age appropriateness: Pre-school and early elementary
Review: This book is an example of realistic fiction. The readers are able to relate to the boy in the story because he is playing in the snow which is something children do. It is something that would happen in real life. Students could easily place themselves in the situations presented.
Media: Acrylic paint ( )

This book is an example of realistic fiction. The students reading this story could easily relate to the boy in this story. It teaches the students about different life experiences and they could imagine themselves in the different situations. I would use this book in a primary classroom. The type of media used is mised media. ( )
