The story is perfect for winter time. It is about 2 sisters who set off in the snow to find a present for their buffalo friend. They encouter many animals along the way who make some interesting suggestions. The book lends itself so nicely for discussion. We talked about each suggestion and why it was or was not good for a buffalo. This book, like the others in the series, includes a map of all the places the characters visit. The maps really helped my class of children with short term memory deficits remember the sequence of events.
The back of the dust jacket includes a recipe for pancakes. My students enjoyed eating pancakes and drinking hot chocolate just like the characters did at the end. We were able to work on social language skills with our little book related party.
I was able to work on so many speech and language goals with this book, I could write an entire page review!
Read it on a snowy night, and wake to a pancake and hot chocolate breakfast. Simply Magical!
