Woof and Quack in Winter
Woof and Quack in Winter is a level-one early reader in the Woof and Quack series. Woof is a dog, and Quack is a duck. When winter comes, the friends have a problem: Quack decides to stay with Woof. Woof tells Quack that ducks always fly south because winter is cold, and Quack doesn’t have warm fur. Quack stays until Woof decides that they need to travel south together. But there is another problem, because dogs do not have wings to fly. They finally solve their problem by spending part of their winter in the snow and part of their winter in the sun.
This is a nice story about two friends who stay together by making compromises. The drawings are really funny. My favorite illustration shows Woof and Quack completely covered with snow so that only their eyes show. This story puts the reader in the mood for a wintertime vacation, either to a snowy place or to a pretty, warm beach. Woof and Quack are nice to each other and make good role models. Anybody will like this book, especially a child learning to read who also likes funny cartoon drawings.
