Is there a moral behind this book? I'm not sure. Perhaps it's one of dependency, and how not to live that way? Or it's just plain fun, which it is. ( )

This book is a fantasy book because it doesn’t ever actually rain food. This book is a really fun read for students because of all the ridiculous things that happen during the storm. After reading this book, teachers could have their students think about what they would want rain to be instead of water and have them draw it and share with the class. It might also be fun for the students to watch the movie after reading the book so they can compare events between the book and movie. ( )

The story is about a grandfather who narrating a story to his grandchildren. His story is about a town who provides its people with meals by raining food. This book is great for story and bedtime. ( )

Chronicling the daily lives of the citizens of an unordinary town called Chewandswallow characterized by its strange daily meteorological pattern that provides the townsfolk with all of their required daily meals by raining food. Although the residents of the town enjoy a lifestyle devoid of any grocery shopping or cookery, the weather unexpectedly and inexplicably takes a turn for the worse, devastating the local community with destructive and uncontrollable storms of either unpleasant or dangerously oversized foods, resulting in unstoppable catastrophes for the townspeople. Their lives endangered by the threats of the storms, they relocate to a different community of normal non-edible meteorological patterns, safe from the hazards that once were presented by raining meals.

I love this story. It is so clever! It would be such a fun read with a class. We could even ask them what they wish would fall from the sky for dinner!

Book description
"Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs" is a story that allows children to use their imagination. In a town one day, food is falling from the sky. Sounds like heaven, no? Well, while others may enjoy the free falling food, not every one is so happy. To see how the town reacts to this phenomenon and what food exactly falls from the sky, children must read and find out.
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0689707495, Paperback)

If food dropped like rain from the sky, wouldn't it be marvelous! Or would it? It could, after all, be messy. And you'd have no choice. What if you didn't like what fell? Or what if too much came? Have you ever thought of what it might be like to be squashed flat by a pancake?

Life is delicious in the town of Chewandswallow where it rains soup and juice, snows mashed potatoes, and blows storms of hamburgers--until the weather takes a turn for the worse.
