Beginning Reader Review of Splat the Cat: Blow Snow Blow by Rob Scotton

Read for: Early Reader Challenge
Synopsis: "Splat the Cat can’t wait for it to snow. All he wants to do is make a snowcat and throw snowballs! When he can’t wait any longer, Splat decides to take matters into his own paws.

Splat the Cat: Blow, Snow, Blow is a Level One I Can Read book, which means it’s perfect for children learning to sound out words and sentences. Beginning readers will delight at Splat’s hilarious attempts to make snow. Readers won’t even know they are learning as the have fun with the long o sound.

Join Splat the Cat in his excitement for snow in New York Times bestselling author and artist Rob Scotton’s beginning reader."

My Review: This is a great level one book for the early winter (or waiting for a storm to blow out until you can go outside). The sentences are simple with some sight words and illustrations that hint to the sentences. There is also a lot of repeating to help those words be remembered for the future.
My Rating: This is a great one for the beginning of winter to teach some words that relate to winter and the activities of winter. We give it a rating of Three Paws.
