This funny book is about a boy who refuses to put on his brown snowsuit. His mother tries his best to put it on him,, but it's a fight. In the end, he realizes that playing outside is better and worth the ugly brown snowsuit. THis would be a great story to read as a class. Read full review

Thomas does not want to put on his snowsuit and gives his teacher and principal a very hard time. Kids love this read aloud in the winter when it is snowing outside. They love to sequence the events with the funny pictures! Read full review
