Watch out! The snowball is rolling your way! This fast-paced, rhyming tale about a snowball that rolls out of control (taking a few people with it) is a funny, engaging read. With repetition, rhyme, and laugh-out-loud illustrations, this is a story you'll want to read again and again. With each two-page spread covered with pictures and typically including only one sentence, The Snowball is a perfect choice for newly independent readers. (Reading Level: 1.9)
