Early Reader Review of It's Snowing! It's Snowing by Peter Prelutsky

Read for: Early Reader Challenge
Synopsis: "From master of rhyme Jack Prelutsky comes a flurry of winter poetry just right to usher in the season of ice and snow!"

My Review: This is a fun book to read in the winter to late spring. It is set as a Level 3 for beginning readers, though it can be enjoyed by any level. The poems are mostly short poems and have similar rhymes and rhythms of some of the more lyrical style children's books. The subject of the poems is obviously snow but some are soft and sweet, some are silly and some are wistful. I found that this is best read with a little one a little at a time, since there is no real story in the book they will loose interest quickly.
My Rating: This book has a nice variety of poem lengths and subjects but as I said young readers may lose interest quickly as there isn't a story involved. Might be good for introducing poetry but only a little at a time. I give it a rating of Two Paws and a Stump Wag.
