Phyllis Root and Helen Craig knit together a suitably sweet finale to Bonnie Bumble’s week on the farm.
It’s Sunday on Bonnie Bumble’s farm, and snowflakes as big as balls of wool are falling. The cow, the duck, the hens, and even Spot the dog are all chilly and shaking. “This will never d-d-d-do,” says Bonnie with chattering teeth—and soon is busy with needles and yarn, knitting something cozy for everyone. But how can she make the sun beam again in the big cold sky? Picture-book luminaries Phyllis Root and Helen Craig wind up their Bonnie Bumble series with a funny tale offering an unexpected twist.
The story line invites dialogic reading opportunities, while the artwork is colorful and friendly. The text includes some alliteration and is easy to read in a storytime. A cute seasonal story that involves farm animals, a perennial favorite for the preschool crowd. —School Library Journal
A quirky cap, no pun intended, to a gently goofy series. —Publishers Weekly
