Joe is having a finger-licking good summer. He is learning history, studying math, and writing a book. Joe is writing a letter to his Grandpa to tell him all about it. What Joe doesnít tell his Grandpa, however, is that everything he is doing has to do with delicious ice cream. He is adding and subtracting lots and lots of ice cream cones. He is learning the history of the invention of vanilla ice cream and when ice cream first came to the United States. He is writing an alphabet book with scrumptious ice cream in every picture. If you want to learn as much as Joe did about delectable ice cream, you need to read this book. See if you can find all the hidden pictures of ice cream in the illustrations Peter Sis, the illustrator, has created. Peter Sisí favorite flavor of ice cream is mango. Whatís yours?
