After writing a review on Rosco the Rascal Visits the Pumpkin Patch, I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. What I love about these books are they are age appropriate. Too many children's chapter books address issues outside the schema of innocent minds in young children. The Rosco series is safe to read with primary grade children. Rosco the Rascal In the Land of Snow, by Shana Gorian, will appeal to elementary school students who love dogs and adventures. This Winter story is a great read aloud or a fun story for small reading groups in grades 1-4. This new children's series follows a sister and brother as they experience adventures with their dog Rosco. Wrap up in a blanket and enjoy a cup of cocoa as you travel to the snow filled mountains for a weekend adventure.

Rosco the Rascal In the Land of Snow by Shana Gorian is the heartwarming story of Rosco the German Shepherd. Set against the backdrop of a snowy land, this story has humor, adventure and drama and will keep readers entertained till the very end. Roscoe has never seen snow and readers see Roscoe going for a family vacation to the mountains. There, along with the children in his family, James and Mandy, they get involved with the problems of another pup. The log cabin, mountains, snow and suspense make it an exciting read for children. The snowman, snow and winter season add to the magic of the story.

The book captures the essence and chills of the winter season. The main characters are adorable and they stay in the minds of readers for a long time. Children will enjoy Rosco and the mischief he creates. It's a good bedtime storybook and is also good for read aloud sessions in classrooms and school libraries. The illustrations are beautiful and capture the beauty of the winter season nicely. The pictures also give pace and movement to the scenes and breathe life into the characters of the story.

All animal lovers will enjoy reading the story which also has a good message. Children learn about the beauty of nature with the help of the author's vivid descriptions of the surroundings. Children will definitely look forward to more adventures from Roscoe the Rascal after reading this story.
