Whoo hoo! One of the days I anticipate all winter is…tomorrow! Groundhog’s Day! Hoping for Punxsutawney Phil to foretell an early spring. For kids who feel the same way I do, here are a couple of fun books about the fascinating subject of predicting the weather. Ahhhh.
Punxsutawney Phyllis is by Susanna Leonard Hill with illustrations by Jeffrey Ebbeler. Phyllis is an outdoor kind of girl and she knows her weather, including the signs of spring. But she’s a girl. Will she get her wish to be the next Punxsutawney forecaster? Read and find out! Pegged for ages 5-8.
The Kids’ Book of Weather Forecasting by Mark Breen and Kathleen Friestad with illustrations by Michael Kline is chock full of experiments and other activities that will teach kids to predict the weather. Have great fun while learning weather science! For grades 3-5.
