#blogbookaday: Ice Boy

31 May

Ice Boy.jpgSummary:  “Ice Boy has a normal life. He likes goofing around with his siblings (“Don’t lick your brother!”). He listens when his parents tell him that being chosen to cool someone’s drink or be a cold compress is the best thing that can happen to an ice cube. But Ice Boy wants more. So even though his parents tell him never to go outside, and even though his doctor tells him never to go in the sun, Ice Boy decides to head for the beach, where he rolls right into the water (“Best day ever!”). But suddenly his edges begin to blur. . . . From the creator of the best-selling Interrupting Chicken comes an offbeat and funny story of daring to venture into the unknown, whatever form it may take.” (Taken from Goodreads)

Review: A totally different perspective of the water cycle from the viewpoint of an ice cub in the freezer. Ice Boy doesn’t want to be chosen to make someone’s drink cold or become a cold compress so he takes matters into his own hands and goes on an adventure!

Personal Reaction: This would be a great book to use during a STEM storytime about the water cycle or pair it with Lady Pancake and Sir French Toast by Josh Funk for a great storytime about the refrigerator!

#blogbookaday (1)This is a new idea I’m trying on my blog this year that was inspired by @donalynbooks and @heisereads – to provide a brief review of a picture book every day of 2018. You’ll get a brief summary of the story, a review of the content, illustrations and theme, my personal reaction to the book and all the pertinent publication information! Enjoy!
