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.

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.

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.

Maple and Brown Sugar Air Fryer Bacon

I've been raving about my Instant Pot but now I have a new favorite... the Air Fryer.  
O M G This thing is amazing!  I don't know why I was so late to the Air Fryer craze but I am so glad I am finally onboard.  

I've been talking about getting one and then after my aunt posted pics of her new air fryer, that was it off to Best Buy I went.  

I wasn't sure how big of a unit I would need but I figured the 2.5 liter would suffice.  I chose the Chefman Express.  It was priced on the shelves for $85 but online for $75.99 and my local store matched the price AND I had my Swagbucks Best Buy QR code so I got 500 SBs + 2 SBs for every dollar spent so that's another 170 SBs.  So, after discounts, my air fryer ended up costing me less than the sale price.  Woohoo!

There were some fancy ones on the shelves with digital display but after checking the reviews I figured since I don't fry much this model would suffice.
When I think of fried foods, I think of fried chicken and bacon.…
