17 Weather Books for Kids

17 Weather Books for Kids

Over the last week, we have seen practically every kind of weather: snow, ice, rain, thunderstorms, and even fog! The girls and I have enjoyed exploring the changes happening outside as the snow thaws and reveals a huge, muddy mess waiting in our yard. To deal with the rainy days, we’ve stopped by the library to grab some weather books for kids. Along with books from our own collection, my children have been reading about types of weather throughout the four seasons and making a list of experiments to try over the weekend.

Adding a stack of books next to the couch can make learning about any subject more fun. Some homeschooling families call this strategy “strewing,” and it’s worked well for us since the girls were toddlers! I like to make sure to include a variety of books, including fiction and non-fiction to interest both of my kids.
