Have you met Miss Mingo? She's a flashy, flamingo teacher with a unique class of animal students. She's been featured in two previous stories...one about the first day of school, and the other about fire drills. The books have a storyline, but they also include fascinating animal facts. Some really good facts have come from underneath the caps of Snapple® drinks (I've collected hundreds by now) but I do spend lots of time doing research at the library which I love.
In MISS MINGO WEATHERS THE STORM, Miss Mingo and her class go on a challenging hike. It rains, it pours; there's hail, even snow! Do the animals make it to the top? Fascinating facts about how animals respond to and/or predict different kinds of weather are included separately from the story. My favorite part of making the book was doing research on the animals.

"Harper's watercolor-and-ink illustrations marvelously convey emotion as well as personality... The appealing story and wide array of weather facts make this a breath of fresh air to round out and add interest to weather units that are heavy in nonfiction titles." Starred, Kirkus
