Katy and the Big Snow [With Paperback Book]by Virginia Lee Burton
Synopses & Reviews
The notorious Miss Swamp reappears at the Horace B. Smedley School to shape up the football team and help them to win at least one game. This time around she has a secret helper! The professionally narrated audio production features lively sound effects and original music. Track one includes page-turn signals; track two features an uninterrupted reading.
For more than 60 years, children have been enjoying the story of Katy, the strong and sturdy tractor who single-handedly digs out her town after a storm buries it beneath a blanket of snow. Now, this classic tale is available in a book-and-CD set. Full color.
In the third Miss Nelson book, the laugh track continues with this book and CD combo. This time, the notorious Miss Swamp returns to Horace B. Smedley School as coach to shape up the football team and help them to win at least one game...and she has a secret helper!
In this paperback edition of Katy and the Big Snow, complete with CD audio recording, Katy, a brave and untiring tractor, who pushes a bulldozer in the summer and a snowplow in the winter, makes it possible for the townspeople to do their jobs.
About the Author
Virginia Lee Burton (1909-1968) was the talented author and illustrator of some of the most enduring books ever written for children. The winner of the 1942 Caldecott Medal for THE LITTLE HOUSE, Burton's books include heroes and happy endings, lively illustrations, and a dash of nostalgia. She lived with her two sons, Aristides and Michael, and her husband George Demetrios, the sculptor, in a section of Gloucester, Massachusetts, called Folly Cove. Here she taught a class in design and from it emerged the Folly Cove designers, a group of internationally known professional artisans. She is the author of many classic children's picture books, including MIKE MULLIGAN AND HIS STEAM SHOVEL and KATY AND THE BIG SNOW.
