Zoomer’s Summer Snowstorm by Ned Young - ADVISABLE
Young, Ned. Zoomer’s Summer Snowstorm. Harper Collins, 2011. $16.99. PICTURE BOOK. Zoomer the dog is back for another adventure. It is summer and hot, so Zoomer asks his mom if he can have a snow cone. He flips on the snow cone machine and gets three feet of snow. He shoots the snow out the window and begins to sculpt it into animals. His two brothers are playing baseball and are above such fun, until Zoomer builds an amusement park out of the snow. The three dogs get hungry and go inside for dinner. They ask their mom for chili, because it’s been cold. The illustrations are truly a tribute to a child’s boundless imagination. A fun reading adventure for summer or winter. ADVISABLE – RATING. Samantha, Public Librarian.
