About this item
Celebrate a day in the snow with Oliver who is filled with excitement for another ski season at Mount Snow in Vermont. His parents have brought him here since he was a baby and now his little brother has a ski pass too. He has a zest for adventure and loves to play outdoors, especially skiing and the occasional snowball fight.
Snowflakes are a symbol throughout the book as no two of us are alike and to symbolize how children can learn to embrace their individuality and offer their own unique unique qualities.
Oliver’s family has a house in Dover, Vermont, home to Mount Snow. He enjoys going to ski school where his instructors are so helpful teaching him how to put on all of his gear, his red hair always sticking out of his helmet. Oliver showed no fear skiing the "black diamond" (most difficult) trailes—is that the easiest trail?
Oliver is learning all of his letters and this book is aimed to inspire learning for children beginning to read, count, and spell. The book pages are filled with soft-colored, hand-drawn art throughout that show his family and others enjoying the mountain in Vermont. Kids of all ages will enjoy spelling out the words and discover the little activities that are inside the pages of this educational experience.
Oliver's family loves exploring the mountain together, they also look forward to hiking this summer and having other outdoor adventures, so readers should watch for the next edition, coming in the fall…
