Hurricanes, floods, earthquakes, oh my.  2017 is definitely shaping up to be quite a contentious weather season.  

Kids are curious about the weather and why not seize the opportunity to educate them about the weather and who knows you may learn a thing or two yourself.

Those all sound like awesome weather books. I bet that my 4th grader has some of these in his classroom library.

How cool, these look like some fabulous weather books for kids. My son used to be obsessed with the weather. He has autism so he'd learn all about the different clouds and such.
I love to see children reading. I have heard of a couple of those titles. The Lorax is a terrific story!
The wind and the rain has certainly done its work this year all over the world. Wonderful books to read to the kids and let them learn.

With Christmas coming up soon this list will definitely help me pick out a few for my kiddos. I love all the weather books here!
My kids really enjoy reading in the evenings with me. We have a daily story time and these books sounds like wonderful additions to our collection.

These all look like fun books to learn about the weather. After the hurricane we just went through, I think I need to get some of these for the kids.
Lisa said…
I'm going to check these out. My son loves all things weather.
This is a great roundup of weather related books. My kids love finding new books to read.

The Lorax is a great book! I also love Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs. It is a family favorite.
Julee Morrison said…
My children love learning about the weather. I love this list because it has something for every age group and such a variety of weather. Thank you for sharing.
Sarah Honey said…
What a great list. We have some of these titles. Add some to our reading list.
Amanda Simkin said…
I really love the idea for this post, especially since weather is dominating headlines and affecting so many lives in a negative way. I would also add that there should be books about pollution and global warming added to this list since it is all interconnected.
Liz Mays said…
Great choices! We already have a couple of these! Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs is a favorite.
What an amazing round up of books about weather, I have to admit I do love The Lorax myself.
Great selection, we just went through the Irma hurricane here in Florida and my daughter had a million and some questions about the weather, these would really be a great way to teach her about the weather.
Anosa Malanga said…
I remember having a weather book when I was young and often taught my then 2 year old sister about the weather system
This is a great list of books aboot the weather. The 5 minute Bible sounds like a great option for kids!
These sound as though they are really fabulous books! I am going to have to give them a read with my littles.

Happy New Year!

What better way to kick off the new year than with a giveaway! I am so excited to join The Mommy Island, The Kids Did It and 90+ other fab blogs in the first big giveaway hop of 2018!

Here’s your chance to start the new year off with a win. One lucky Three Boys and an Old Lady blog reader will receive a $15 Walmart eGift card. $10 may not seem like a lot but it’s enough to stock up on some last minute Christmas clearance gifts. Trust me. I bought a 6’ Christmas tree WITH lights, 2 animal massagers, 3 Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser, Christmas cards and wrapping paper less than $20 during an after Christmas Walmart shopping trip.

I was searching for some cough syrup when my friend’s kid spotted the Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser on sale for 50 cents. What a steal! The regular price is $10 so to find them on sale for 50 cents was a deal. We cleared the shelves.

A few rows down we spotted some animal neck massager…
