Ice Boy by David Ezra Stein

Rating: ★★★★★

Genre: Children’s Lit

Medium: Hardcover

Synopsis: This little ice cube knows that it’s a great honor to be chosen for someone’s drink.  But what if there’s more out there?

Review: Hi, I love this book.  Not only does it teach about the water cycle in an indirect way, but it shows the importance of family, growing up, and being different.  Also, I really enjoy David Ezra Stein’s illustrations.

So, this little ice cube wants something more, right?  So he goes off to the beach, where he gets a little melty.  And after being evaporated, rained down, and re-frozen, Ice Boy finally returns home, where his parents, being poured into a drink, are overjoyed that he’s returned.  He looks a little different, yes, but he’s returned.  And he’s better for having left, and he’s different, but he’s returned.

I just.  It’s such a sweet book, and it’s educational, and it’s sentimental.  Leaving home can change you, but it’s all worth it in the end, especially if you have a family that will love you no matter what.
