Frostbite by Julia Dweck – An Amazing Story of Friendship


Frostbite – the dog for all ages!

Julia Dweck does it again!  Frostbite is another wonderful children’s book with amazing illustrations.  It’s a story of a young boy who wants a dog.  When his mother won’t let him have one, he creates it out of snow.

The boy plays with the dog all day and then tries to bring it inside.  Well, the dog got a little hot and they had to find a special place to keep him so he wouldn’t melt.

The story is wonderful and my five year old daughter was thrilled when we read it.  The rhyming is great for preschool and kindergarteners who are learning reading, spelling and rhyming.  I would read the first sentence and then she would read the rhyming word in the next sentence.

After I got through the first few pages my eight year old twin daughters were intrigued by the story and plopped on the couch to listen and look.  It was a great family time.  After we got through the first pass the twins wanted to go back and started at the beginning.

Frostbite is a fun story and teaches kids how to come up with innovative solutions to their problems.  But with the winter coming I’m just hoping I don’t have my kids trying to bring a snow dog into the house!
