A Very Special Snowflake (Giveaway)

February 1, 2009 by Kailani  
Filed under books, kids, reviews & giveaways

Here in Hawaii, we don’t get a whole lot of snow. In fact, my girls have only played in the snow once in their entire lives. That’s why they were so intrigued with the book A Very Special Snowflake by Don Hoffman.

BOOK DESCRIPTION

Jeff and Veronica have lost their new puppy! The baker, the policewoman, the mail carrier, and other neighbors all try to help. But where could Snowflake be?

MY REVIEW

I have to say that we really enjoyed this book not only because it’s part of a world that we’re not used to but also because of the hilarious interactions among the people in the neighborhood. It was so funny that everyone misunderstood what the kids were looking for because of their dog’s name. Each time we turned the page, we anticipated yet another confusion! However, what we really enjoyed the most was trying to find the somewhat hidden Snowflake on every page. Little did Jeff & Vernonica know that Snowflake was with them all the time!

This book was quick and easy to read. The colorful illustations really brought the story to life and it is sure to become a family favorite!

WIN IT!
