~I received The Thing About Yetis for the purpose of reviewing. Opinions and stories are my own.~
Winter is a coming and with it cooler weather. Here in Florida it is a sweltering 90 degrees outside but my girls enjoy dreaming of seeing snow someday. One way to take them there is through a book. The Thing About Yetis by Vin Vogel is the perfect picture book to read when we are dreaming of cooler weather because sometimes yetis might be doing the same thing and be dreaming of warmer weather.
Everyone knows yetis love winter. They love snowball fights and hot chocolate and sledding and building snow castles. But even yetis get the shivers, and even yetis get crabby from all the cold. So here’s a secret about yetis: sometimes they miss summer. Sometimes, they have to bring a little bit of summer to the coldest of winter days. Those yetis, they’re just full of surprises.
Vin Vogel is a Brazilian author and illustrator based in New York City. He has illustrated more than fifty books for children and young adults. The Thing About Yetis is his debut picture book as an author and illustrator. Like yetis, Vin loves winters, although he thinks the cold should not last more than two months – ever!
Yetis love playing in the snow, ice skating and all the other traditional fun stuff that can be done in the snow but they can also get the winter blues just like anyone else. For kids ages 3-5 this book is illustrated with one of the cutest and fluffiest yetis around. No need to be scared of this book as this yeti is friendly!
