KIRKUS REVIEW

Little readers learn the value of dressing properly for various weather conditions.

When it’s “HOT” outside, we wear bathing suits, sun hats, sandals, and sunscreen. When it’s “RAINY,” we wear raincoats, overalls, and rain boots. Our wardrobe’s reaction to the weather is important, and this board book is dedicated to making sure little ones are prepared. Each turn of the page features a weather scene on the left page and all the clothing and accessories one would wear in these conditions on the right. Each weather scene is given a prominent color scheme: “SUNNY” is green, “STORMY” is purple, and so forth. All the clothing is labeled in simple black text on a white background. The final pages of the book depict three children, two brown and one white, playing under a rainbow in appropriate clothing. Jones’ illustrations are charming yet understated, plainly presenting the articles of clothing but rendering her weather scenes with artistic flourish—the smiling animals in each will charm readers on second and third visits, especially the reflection of the gray cat looking out the window at the stormy night.

A plainspoken and effective introduction to the spectrum of weather patterns, with color identification as a bonus. (Board book. 1-2)
