While the subject is scientific, the book reads like a children’s story, or rather TV program, complete with commercial break (while Chef Kelvin has a meltdown). My girls delighted in the definition of a gas – you will have to read it yourself to see what gave them the giggles – as well as Chef Kelvin’s dramatic outbursts.
The Snow Show would be most suitable for elementary school aged kids, but my 4 year old enjoyed it as much as my 6 year old did. The story flows nicely with or without the phase change side bars, so it is possible to simplify for a younger audience or get into more detail with older readers. To continue the learning, be sure to download the Snow Show Study Guide here (a free download) for fun snow-related activities.
We love snow, and the girls are at the ‘Why?’ stage, so The Snow Show allowed us satisfy their curiosity in a fun way. I think the book would make a great gift for any boy or girl (although one of the sous chefs is named Snow White, the story isn’t princessy at all)!
