Red Sky At Night by Elly MacKay

Things To Help Predict The Weather



Each scene in this book of weather folklore is created from ink drawing and cut-paper. The scenes that Elly MacKay has created blend well with each saying. And she has a family sailing, fishing, camping, and then going home when a storm threatens.  

Since the book consists of folk sayings only, there isn't much story. 

My Thoughts


What Concerned Me: I see this book for a select audience of children, though it would be excellent to use in a classroom.

What I Loved Most: It is a very good introduction to weather, and the illustrations are so interesting. Especially if you go to her site (below) and watch how they are created.

If you have a child interested in weather, here is a post to keep that love alive. It offers all sorts of weather-related activities.
