National Ice Cream Month Kid Lit Review of “Ice Cream” by Jules Older

If the artwork style for this book looks familiar to you, it is because the illustrator, Lyn Severance, is the artist behind the “look” of Ben and Jerry’s ice cream. And like the Ben and Jerry’s store and website, this book is bursting with color, playful fonts and cartoon-style pictures, along with fun ice cream trivia and history told in a humorous manner just right for kids.

You’ll learn about the invention of the ice cream cone, the world’s biggest soda fountain, how the ice cream sundae got it’s name, “the inside scoop” on the invention of the banana split, and much more.

At the end, there is a fun quiz, followed by a list of books and web sites for further information, including sites with recipes for making our own ice cream.

Evaluation: Want to know more about ice cream? Forget about having to attend Sundae School! Just check out this book- it will put you in a good humor!

    So fun! As Penn Stater’s, we know a thing or two about ice cream and this book looks adorable. Little bit of trivia for you. Ben & Jerry learned to make ice cream at a course they took at Penn State!
