This book is an example of realistic fiction. The students reading this story could easily relate to the boy in this story. It teaches the students about different life experiences and they could imagine themselves in the different situations. I would use this book in a primary classroom. The type of media used is mised media.
The BIG Snowball is about a boy who makes a snowball and it gets carried away by the wind and ends up landing in an ice cream cone that the boy eats as a treat!The story has flash cards with the book. The words are on one side and pictures of the words on the other side. The story does not spell out these words, rather it uses the picture instead, so that the child only sees the word on the flashcard. I guess it could be engaging to a beginning reader, but I found it distracting.
