Very few times of the year provide us with as much wild weather as does the spring, so let’s read about weather!
March may come in like a lion and out like a lamb, but does it always? What does that saying even mean? How can you compare a month to an animal?
Grab a few of these books about weather and read about rain and storms, thunder and lightning, sunshine and rainbows. And maybe help those kids of yours to understand what it means to compare a month to a few animals.
