Another delightful, well written and attention grabber by Janice Dean, Freddy the Frogcaster and the Big Blizzard, reminiscent of her first book Freddy The Frogcaster, this one will not disappoint. My 7 year old was just about rolling on the floor, and enjoyed the story so much; I had to read it again. He delighted in the eye-catching illustrations, and the whimsical names, Sally Croaker and Polly Woggins, and of course, he had to add his own few that he came up with. In this book he also had a learning lesson about what the family should have to be prepared for a bad winter storm. He knows we already have some of the items that were listed, we also went over where all of the things are located, and we need to pick up some more batteries. If you are looking for a great book, that is eye catching, and keeps your child’s attention, I highly recommend this one. My little guy did decide that he didn’t want to try the fried cricket stew. At the end of the book there is a highly educational area on weather conditions, and again has illustrations. There is also a winter checklist with what if’s, and good hints. I received this book through the publisher Regnery Kids, and was not required to give a positive review.
