Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

Toad Weather by Sandra Markle

Title: Toad Weather Toad Weather

Author: Sandra Markle

Illustrator: Tomas Gonzalez

Publisher: Peachtree Publishers

Published: March 1st, 2015

Rating: 5/5

Ally and her Grandma hate the rainy weather and are moaning about having nothing to do when Ally’s Mum comes in excited and determined to take them on an adventure. On their way to the adventure, Ally’s Mum points out all different things which make the rainy day exciting and interesting rather than boring. When they go round a corner there is a large crowd and Mum explains what the adventure is all about! To find out more you’ll just have to read the story!

This book is superbly illustrated, the images beautifully crafted and detailed, really enhancing the enjoyment of the lovely story. The story is written in an engaging and enthralling manner, taking the reader on Ally’s adventure to find just what her Mum wants to show her. Children are likely to find it easy to relate to the story and love the near photographic, rainy, atmospheric illustrations.

Teachers could easily use this superb book as a fantastic story to share with pupils but it could also be used to initiate any activities relating to looking after our environment and the life that lives there. It could also be used to help introduce work on life cycles, habitats and investigating how we can take steps to minimise the impact humans have on natural environments and the organisms living in them.

Thanks to the author, publishers and NetGalley, too, for letting me read this book in exchange for an honest review.
