Written and illustrated
by Jamie Harper

“Harper's watercolor-and-ink illustrations marvelously convey emotion as well as personality, from Groundhog's shy manner to the rather princesslike Alligator. The appealing story and wide array of weather facts make this a breath of fresh air to round out and add interest to weather units that are heavy in nonfiction titles.”

— Kirkus Reviews

“Packed with fascinating details and realistic classmate interactions, it’s a treat for animal lovers.”

— Publishers Weekly

“This book is an enjoyable read-aloud for five-year olds that will reignite interest as the child becomes a developing reader who will enjoy the text boxes explaining the characteristics of many of the animals and weather events.”
