Read Some Ice Cream
Children Books With Your Kids
I've included a list of children books that I thought your family might enjoy reading together. These are geared towards pre-school and elementary children and have lots of pictures.
You may be able to find some of these in your local library. That's where I found them.

Ice Cream Childrens Books
- Babe Ruth and the Ice Cream Mess - by Dan Gutman and illustrations by Elaine Garvin
This ready-to-read level 2 book is a fun glimpse into the past. You'll see ice cream carts with ice cream for 5 cents and boys playing stick ball in the streets of Baltimore on these colorful pages.
- Dora and the Stuck Truck - by Phoebe Beinstein and illustrations by Robert Roper
If you have kids that like trucks, they'll enjoy reading this Dora Adventure where 5 different work trucks help to get the ice cream truck out of the mud.
- Fancy Nancy - by Jane O'Connor and illustrations by Robin Preiss Glasser
This book has become one of our favorites! The story and illustrations are equally cute. We've just fallen in love with it. My youngest daughter has asked to read it at least 10 times since we checked it out yesterday. Definitely worth buying.
- Ice Cream - by Elisha Cooper
It all starts with a cow in this nicely watercolor illustrated childrens book. The author describes the process of how ice cream is made - from milking the cow to delivering the ice cream to the stores. Included at the end of the book is a glossary of words like emulsifier, hopper, and homogenization. Do you know what a hopper is? You will if you read this book.
- Max Drives Away - by Rosemary Wells
In this very cute board book, Max wants ice cream for breakfast.(Most of us can relate to this.) Sister, Ruby, says no, but clever Max always finds a way.
- Milk to Ice Cream - by Julie Murray
This book teaches young scientific minds about how cows are milked and then how that milk is used to make ice cream in a factory. It includes some ice cream facts and 6 vocabulary words that are highlighted on the pages.
- Pearl and Wagner: Three Secrets - by Kate McMullan and illustrations by R. W. Alley
This easy-to-read book divided into three chapters, is a story of two friends who love ice cream, but not necessarily secrets. Their class takes a trip to the ice cream factory and a friend invites them to her birthday party where they get to ride a roller coaster.
- Spike and Cubby's Ice cream Island Adventure - by Heather Sellers and illustrations by Amy L. Young
Spike and Cubby, two dogs that write and illustrate books together, get distracted by the thought of a special treat on Ice Cream Island. Getting there takes them on quite an adventure... but, it's worth it. I especially enjoyed the colorful and fun pictures. I wish there was an Ice Cream Island - for people.
- The SpongeBob Squarepants Movie: Ice Cream Dreams - Nancy Krulik and illustrations by Heather Martinez
In this Sponge Bob story, Sponge Bob tries to cheer himself up by eating way too many ice cream sundaes.
- Wemberly's Ice-Cream Star - by Kevin Henkes
This is a very enjoyable board book. My youngest children, who are just learning to read, like to read it to themselves.

I'll go first...
This story was written by my oldest daughter at 8 years old in 2001. She gave me permission to share this. She is actually the biggest ice cream freak in our family and has been since her first spoonful of ice cream at age 1. (I'm certain that someday she'll have an ice cream cake when she gets married.)
