Children’s Book of the Week: Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs

This Week’s Book: Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs

Blurb (From Amazon):

An imaginative story of amazing food weather that inspired the hit movie, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs is a favorite of grown-ups and children everywhere.

The tiny town of Chewandswallow was very much like any other tiny town—except for its weather which came three times a day, at breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

But it never rained rain and it never snowed snow and it never blew just wind. It rained things like soup and juice. It snowed things like mashed potatoes. And sometimes the wind blew in storms of hamburgers.

Life for the townspeople was delicious until the weather took a turn for the worse. The food got larger and larger and so did the portions. Chewandswallow was plagued by damaging floods and storms of huge food. The town was a mess and the people feared for their lives.

Something had to be done, and in a hurry.

This beloved bestseller is now available for the youngest readers in this Classic Board Book edition!

Reason I chose this book:

I loved this book as a child. I can’t tell you how many times I read it. To myself. To my siblings. I live in a southern state so we don’t see snow much. I did wish for snow a lot as a kid, but in the form of mashed potatoes lol. I was excited when the movie came out. It wasn’t like what I was expecting, but I really did like the addition they added to the book. It was imaginative. I don’t really like went things get changed in adaptations, but this is an exception!
