K-Gr 2–The snow has come, and young Ty is terribly excited at the prospect of fun. In this installment of the “Ty’s Travels” series, Ty dreams up the North Pole. His mom and dog are equally excited to visit, and as they take a winter walk, the trio has a delightful time sledding and meeting holiday denizens. Whenever Ty’s imagination overlaps with reality, the background images convert into a child’s crayon drawings. The dark-skinned boy and mother look happy to be together, and adorably plumped up in their winter gear. As a “My First I Can Read,” the narration and dialogue is primarily limited to one-clause lines. The words give the right level of challenge for many beginners, with the illustrations providing some hints.
VERDICT As Ty likes to say, “Everything is wonderful” in this cozy easy reader. A great addition to put out for winter book displays.
