With the arrival of summer here in North Carolina, comes ice cream. Lots and lots of ice cream!
For my birthday a few weeks ago, my sweet boy took me on a “date” for ice cream. I drove and he paid. So sweet!
And yes, that is a big ol’ waffle cone of vanilla in my hand!
While we have read a lot of ice cream books, we’ve never done an actual ice cream unit study. That is on my list to do this year if I can get my act together!
We are going to start with this great list of books about ice cream.

We’ve checked out these books several times from our local library and we own a few of them.
As always, unless I’ve noted otherwise, I’ve read each of these books with my children and they are recommended by me!
Ice Cream: The Full Scoop by Gail Gibbons
We love everything we’ve ever read by Gail Gibbons. She’s definitely one of our favorite authors! Ms. Gibbons has such a knack for making non-fiction come alive!
In this book, your kiddos will learn quite a bit about the history of ice cream – everything from how ice cream is made to the origins of the ice cream cone.
The Scoop on Ice Cream by Bonnie Williams
They have just the right amount of facts and history mixed with easy to understand text.
And the whole series is so cheap! Win!
Ice Cream Summer by Peter Sis
This is one of our favorite ice cream books! It’s written from the perspective of a little boy, who is writing a letter to his grandpa.
It has quite a bit of ice cream history, and tons of ice cream cones throughout the book. Have a great time counting them all!
Should I Share My Ice Cream? by Mo Willems
Mo Willems is another favorite author!
This story is told from the elephant’s perspective, as he’s debating about whether to share his ice cream – a dilemma we all face! 🙂
I love to talk to my kiddos about adjectives as we read this book, since it’s packed full of them.
