Wishy-Washy Weather

Reading Rhymes Together

by Susan Falkenhan View author's profile page

Wishy-Washy Weather is a read-aloud rhyming book about weather.
Books about weather are usually just that…about weather. They provide facts but leave out the fun and engaging way to bring the elements of weather to life for young children. Wishy-Washy Weather is different. It is a read-aloud book that captivates its audience by combining delightful illustrations with the playful addition of rhymes. The author went a step further and created a unique way to slip in a fun lesson. Children enjoy the images of weather while learning rhyming word pairs and matching them to the words in the verse. A supplemental page at the end of the book provides an explanation of how rhyming impacts a young child's reading readiness. It also includes suggestions for open-ended discussion that gives children an opportunity to talk about weather related to their experience, their favorite type of weather, and even asks them to think about weather they may have never see. Not only does Wish-Washy Weather dive into the work of rhyming with young readers, it's also just a plain fun rhyming book!
