Reviews - What do customers think about Katy and the Big Snow (Vol 2)?

Still love it after all these years...  Mar 31, 2008
I'm 41 years old. This was my favorite book as a child and I just bought another copy. It's absolutely precious.
One of the few machines in books that is female!  Mar 28, 2008
Katy is the name of the very strong and indefatigable snowplow who saves the town. I was surprised that my 2.5 y.o daughter enjoyed this because the pictures are not very colorful, but love it she did! When seeing a snowplow in a storm not long after she pointed yelling "It's Katie!"
Katy and the big snow  Feb 13, 2008
This a good book--especially if your child loves trucks and construction equipment as mine does. We first ordered the classic Mike Mulligan's Steam Shovel and then got this book because of it's similarities. Its old-school illustrations are a nice change of pace from some of the newer books we read to our son.
My 25 month old love this book!  Dec 7, 2007
Discovered this book at our doctor's office. My oldest baby did not want to put it down. I told him we would go home and order it on the computer. Each day he looked out the window to see if "KATY" was there yet. Needless to say, he loves this book. It has an incredible map. And it's clear this will be a book we value for many years.
A Simple Favorite  Dec 6, 2007
I have fond memories of this book as a child, so I wanted to share it with my three year old daughter. To my surprise, it was not quite as interesting to me now as it was in my memories. My daughter loves it, however, and we read it together often! It is a simple story of a mess being cleaned up, and maybe that simplicity is what appeals to her.
