34 months - grandpa needed a reminder of how much fun it is to go sledding! Just one more time!!! Oh how many times did I say that to my Dad? And now I hear it from O too. She loves a good fast ride down the hill! ( )

Aw... you know the feeling of sledding. You always want to go back for ONE LAST RIDE, right? Pity grown-ups forget that sort of thing. They really need reminding...

Like... maybe... the sort of reminding that happens when your grandpa accidentally falls onto your toboggan and you go sliding all the way through town, picking up bakers and cops and mailmen on the way? Each new person causes the rest of them to squabble about sitting still in their own spots, which of course is wildly amusing given that they're going at three times top speed down that hill. It actually reminds me a lot of No Jumping on the Bed!

And of course, Grandpa is the one who runs back up at the end... for just that one last ride. ( )

This book would be a fun one to read to a class because it is a add-on book. Different people kept falling on to the long toboggan (and each time, it says who all is on the toboggan), and Grandpa kept saying the same thing. You could have your class participate and say it along with you. You should read this book in the winter since it deals with snow. You could have your class share/draw any snow experience they have had. ( )
