K-Gr 2-Kami, a young girl with brown skin, cannot wait to go outside in the snow and play with Flubby, her cat. Flubby is not so sure about the snow. Kami and Flubby head outside, and while Kami is ready for fun, the cat goes back inside. Kami then helps Flubby get ready for a snowy day by giving him boots, which keeps his feet warm. But then Flubby's back is cold. This continues for a few pages: the cat keeps getting cold until he is dressed appropriately for the big snow day. Then, Flubby does not want to go back inside-he wants to play! Kami and Flubby build snow kittens and enjoy the weather. They finish the day back inside with some hot cocoa by the fireplace. Simple structure of a sentence or so on each page is great for emerging readers. The illustrations are charming, with their cartoon outlines, facial expressions, and layout. A previous book in the "Flubby" series, Flubby Is Not a Good Pet!, was a Theodor Seuss Geisel Honor Book. VERDICT A great addition for all libraries looking for modern emergent reader books.-Katie Lleraα(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
