As an early chapter book, the text is fairly repetitive and easy to read, with large, spacious font. There are images in small squares which break up the text and give young readers a lovely glimpse into Penny's life.
What I loved: The simplicity of the story makes it great for young readers who are just beginning to read chapter books. The illustrations are lovely and full of bright colors, which will appeal to a broad audience. The story line is easy to follow and has a happy conclusion with the finding of the flowers. It also presents a great message of dealing with disappointment and managing goals.
Final verdict: Overall, this is a charming early chapter book that will appeal to young readers, particularly those who are fans of winter and will empathize with Penny's wait for snow. With an ultimately happy ending, this fun read includes great illustrations and clear fonts that make it a great early chapter book to pick up.
