#Review: Toad Weather by Sandra Markle/ Illustrated by Thomas Gonzalez #Kindles #kidsbooks

There's nothing to do on a rainy day or so Ally thinks. But Mama says she's seen something amazing, so despite Ally's misgivings, she sets out on an adventure with her mother and grandmother. On her journey, she sees all sorts of things: dripping awnings, wet cardboard, splashing cars...but also earthworms, storm drain geysers, and oil slick patterns. And then they turn the corner, just in time to see a big crowd. What's happening?

My review:
I like a good adventure. Couple that adventure with the rain and you have a win for me. This book had all that and more.

I like how the book pointed out the things we probably see every day but never give them a second thought. It makes life more interesting. Don't you think?

What was really great was finding out about a real annual event that happens during migration season for toads.  However, I can not divulge that as it will give away the crux of this book.
The author does write about this at the end of the book.

The illustrations were realistic which added to the book and simply makes for a great read.

I give this book 4 stars.

Disclosure: I was given a Kindle copy of this book for my open and honest opinion. The views expressed here are 100% my own and may differ from yours. ~Naila Moon
