This is a Step 1 book in the Random House Step Into Reading series. It's meant for pre-K-K with simple words, large type, and rhyming sentences. This book is easy to read and allows my kids to use the reading skills they are learning in school with books we have at home.
The illustrations are fun and colorful and I can't wait to turn the page to see what that snowball picks up next. Unfortunately, my kids can. They only read this book when I asked them to and never chose to read it on their own.
THE SNOWBALL is a nice book and a break from the princess and car books that are so popular at my house.
These Step 1 series are recommended for preschool-K - the stories are in large type and the vocabulary is easy. The stories are also in a rhyming format which makes them easy and fun to read, e.g. "I saw a snowball on a hill. It rolled along and picked up Bill!" The full color pictures also provide contextual clues as to the word being used in the text. These early readers have raised my daughter's confidence level in reading, and she is doing so well that I'm purchasing the Step Two books (Preschool-Grade 1). I use these books in conjunction with sight words to reinforce her recognition of common vocabulary.
