I've been trying to find a book with an element of weather in the title for the What's in a Name 2014 Challenge all year without any luck. Frost Hollow Hall
(my first choice) was unavailable; The Wind in the Willows
(my plan B book) was uninteresting; and Snow Garden
(picked up on a whim from the library) was unreadable. I tried a couple of other snow-related titles (Snowblind
and In Falling Snow
) but ended up not finishing either book. And I'd already read Gone With the Wind
, and I just wasn't in the mood for The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind
. Obviously, weather isn't my thing.
So I'm changing directions. At the library this week I found a trio of picture books with clever stories and delightful illustrations and they ALL have an element of weather in their titles, from a great big storm to a windy day to the first snowfall. They're lots of fun to read, the pictures are great, and I recommend them all. (And if that's cheating for this challenge, I no longer care.)
Book titles: The Bears in the Bed and the Great Big Storm by Paul Bright
Flora's Very Windy Day by Jeanne Birdsall
Snow by Uri Shulevitz
What's in a Name Challenge: 6 books read; 0 to go!!!
(This challenge has been a lot of fun, but I have to admit...I'm glad I'm done.)
