Book and CD combination makes storytime fun. Katy and the Big Snow is about Katy, a brave and industrious tractor, who bulldozes in the summer and snowplows in the winter, making it posssible for the townspeople to do their jobs. Children ages 3 - 8 have a choice to read along with or without page-turn signals. As an added bonus, the book comes with snowy stickers! Shimmering cover art adds to the fun; a winter story favorite just right for beginning readers.
Virginia Lee Burton (1909-1968) was the talented author and illustrator of some of the most enduring books ever written for children. The winner of the 1942 Caldecott Medal for THE LITTLE HOUSE, Burton's books include heroes and happy endings, lively illustrations, and a dash of nostalgia. She lived with her two sons, Aristides and Michael, and her husband George Demetrios, the sculptor, in a section of Gloucester, Massachusetts, called Folly Cove. Here she taught a class in design and from it emerged the Folly Cove designers, a group of internationally known professional artisans. She is the author of many classic children's picture books, including MIKE MULLIGAN AND HIS STEAM SHOVEL and KATY AND THE BIG SNOW.
