Winter's Flurry Adventure

There are four sisters: Summer, Spring, Winter and Autumn. I like them because they have powers and they use them to control the weather. They go on adventures with Winter's pet polar bear, and my favorite part is when they slide down the mountain.

The second in the Enchanted Sisters series, this is a stronger tale than the first installment, exploring the friendship dynamic between a girl and her polar bear. Authors Elise Allen and Halle Stanford do a wonderful job keeping the adventure interesting, with great pacing and surprises along the way.

The same gender issue that appeared in Book 1 is present in Book 2: The girls are largely sweet, well-mannered, and well taken care of, whereas the boys represent all that's not so great in the world, with poor table manners and cruelty to animals. But now there's a juxtaposition of the resources between the genders: self-cleaning, self-healing homes for the girls and standard homes for the boys that are layered in dirt, discarded food, and broken items. A great question for parents to ask is, "Do the girls behave very differently from the boys, or do their resources matter in some instances?" Overall, there's growth from the first tale and a fun story, with a good amount of sweetness -- but not too much.
