Roche, Harriet and Hannah. Pete’s Puddles (originally published in 1996 by D. R Agostini Editions; republished in 1998 by Larousse Kingfisher Chambers).  Part of the “My First Weather Books” series, Pete’s Puddles uses the simple story of a child’s day, rather than the seasons, and the things kids love to do, like splashing in puddles, to convey information about how weather influences the games children play, the clothes they wear, and the food they eat.  The full color drawings are full of lots of fun details that will make the younger set laugh.  They can develop their own extended story from the great pictures that will keep growing every time they read it.  We checked this book out of the library for our younger son Jeremy to accompany his homeschool science studies when he was in early elementary school.
