I love anything Robert Munsch. 50 Below Zero is the perfect book to read with your students on a cold winter’s day. The story revolves around a young boy, Jason, whose father sleepwalks. He finds him in all sorts of funny places, on top of the car, on top of the fridge. But now his father has walked right out the front door, and its 50 below zero! Jason must bundle up and head outside to find his father before he turns into an ice cube!
“So Jason put on three warm snowsuits, three warm parkas, six warm mittens, six warm socks and one pair of very warm boot sort of things called mukluks. Then he went out the front door and followed his father’s footprints”.
Written in classic Munsch style and with great illustrations, this book is a fun addition to any discussion about winter, temperature, insulation, or how and why we feel cold.
