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.

What a great list. We have some of these titles. Add some to our reading list.
Amanda 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.
Sarah Bailey said…
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 said…
I remember having a weather book when I was young and often taught my then 2 year old sister about the weather system
