School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 2-There's plenty to look at and much to discover in this visual tribute to the fanciful folk song. "Oh, I'm bound to go where there's fresh white snow,/Where the rain don't fall and the wind don't blow/On the Big Rock Candy Mountain." In the colorful artwork, rich tones contrast with the softer haze of pastels to create a series of mountain vignettes as a family of four takes to the hills for camping, tree climbing, boating, square dancing, and mining. The images directly follow those of the lyrics as the characters meet bears playing instruments and wearing "crazy socks," paddle through a lake of "marshmallow goo," and listen to a quartet of singing bluebirds. There are tasty treats everywhere, and a Mount Rushmore scene featuring bear faces adds to the entertainment. The words and music for the song are appended. An additional choice for larger libraries.-Mary Elam, Forman Elementary School, Plano, TX (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
