It's field-trip day for Miss Mingo's multispecies class - but will each animal find a way to weather the weather on the path up to the observatory? It's a spring morning, and Miss Mingo and her class are ready to hike up High Hill to visit the weather station. Groundhog, the new student, predicts that the weather will be perfect. But as the animals climb, the temperature does too, and Panda seeks a shady spot while Hippo starts sweating red (it's normal, not blood!). And that's just the beginning! From hail and swirling winds to pouring rain and a sudden chill, everyone from Ant to Alligator is learning about some crazy atmospheric changes. Sprinkled with fascinating facts about weather and animal habits, this charming, one-of-a-kind class trip is sure to bring sunny smiles.

This was a delightful book about a class full of students (various animals) who took a hike up High Hill to visit a weather observatory. Along the way we learn facts about animals and the weather. Many of the interesting facts were new to me. For instance: You can tell the temperature by how fast a cricket chirps. There was a large variety of animals (including unusual ones like a narwhal) and insects on this hike giving plenty of learning opportunities for children

The illustrations are very colorful and fun. There is a lot to see in each picture. This book could be read several time and new things would be seen each time.

Miss Mingo Weathers the Storm is advertized for grades K-3. Children of these ages would love this book and learn from its fun and humorous style.
