Jensen, Belinda Raindrops on a Rollercoaster: Hail (Bel the Weather Girl) Millbrook(Lerner) 2016. $20.00 PICTURE BOOK/NON-FICTION
Bel and her cousin Dylan are playing outside when it starts to
storm. When they go inside hail starts to fall. The cousins learn about hail
from Bel’s mother, a meteorologist. She explains how hail is just rain with an
icy jacket, nothing to be scared of. She explains why they fall to the ground
This is a wonderful book for K-2 readers, it makes hail simple
and interesting to understand. Besides I am sucker for the non-fiction facts
told in the guise of a story. The illustrations are pretty cute, like a pbs
kids cartoon. I would add this series to my library collection in a heartbeat.
