Synopsis

When Henry wakes up, the ground is covered with snow! That means it's a perfect day for building a snowman and going ice-skating. On the way to the ice-skating rink, Henry sees lots of winter activity: special trucks for plowing snow and special trucks that help vehicles stuck in the snow!

Henry Goes Skating uses simple, easy-to-read text and bold illustrations to bring stories to life for beginning readers. This is the second title in the Everything Goes I Can Read series, filled with vehicles that know how to move even when there's snow on the road.

Passengers wheel luggage through a concourse, undress to various degrees at a security station (“NOPE” flashes the red sign over the gate as a peg-legged pirate tries to pass), board a jetliner (later seen in a cutaway view) and taxi out to the runway for a climactic double-gatefold takeoff.
