Children love to learn about how their favorite foods are made, especially this sweet treat! “Let’s Find Out About Ice Cream,” by Mary Ebeltoft Reid, is informative and fun with its mixture of illustrations and photographs accompanying the simple text. Our text-dependent questions help young learners grasp the facts while you model close reading and offer pair-sharing opportunities.
