Chipmunk and Bear share a snowy adventure in this easy-to-read Level C book.
"I love snow!" says Bear. "Me too!" says Chipmunk.
Despite their differences in size, Chipmunk and Bear have a lot in common. When Bear decides to go play in the snow, Chipmunk is eager to tag along.
The two friends have fun skiing, skating, and building a snowman—although Chipmunk needs a hand now and then in the deep snow! This simple tale of friendship is perfect for early readers, with simple, highly repetitive text and four or less sentences per spread.
Valeri Gorbachev's charming art adds detail and helps support understanding of the story—and readers are sure to smile at the furry friends' wintery adventures.
