From police horses to a Zamboni, Henry sees lots of fun things that go in this winter-themed I Can Read title!
While I have not read Everything Goes: On Land and the “…in the Air” after getting my hands on this I Can Read! book from the series I think I will have to look for those and the other I Can Read! From Brian Bigger Everything Goes. This is a My First Level early reader with short and simple but fun sentences full of varying punctuation. A great one for the winter months whether your early reader will get snow or not, they can experience it along with Henry in his car ride to go ice skating and later to build a snow man. All the winter white sites he sees (obviously on city streets) bring out a story in simple sentences that is fun for intriguing the earliest readers. The images are fun and colorful too.
