Winter Is for Snow by Robert Neubecker -- ADVISABLE
In rhyming text, a cold-loving brother and his snow-hating sister argue cheerfully about the pros and cons of winter. Will they be able to see eye-to-eye?
The rhyme scheme works well overall, and the illustrations are cheerful, imaginative, and often humorous. This book would be especially fun to read aloud on the first very cold day of fall/winter or during the first snow fall. Would also work when discussing persuasive techniques in expository writing or seeing both sides of a tricky issue.
