cute follow-up story to Cloudy with a chance of meatballs :) ( )
  EBassett | Mar 20, 2019 |
This book is a sequel to Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. This book is about a dream the little girl had that to her to a magical place. Then when her Grandpa returned home there were many similarities between where the grandpa had been and where the little girls dream was.
USES: To teach about imagination and to teach about creative writing ( )

Summary: This book is about this little boy who gets caught day dreaming about an island, (which in his world, exists) that has food instead of weather. This is the sequel to Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, and tells the story of what this child imagines what happens after everyone leaves the island. She thinks that the food gets shipped off all around the world to help feed others. For instance the chili goes to Chile, the pears to Paris and the pickles to Pittsburg.
Genre: I would say that this book is science fiction, because it makes something that is so natural to us, the weather and turns it into something that can't really happen, but makes it possible due to science and the way things work. There is talk of a future world that is very different of the one here.
Medium: ink and water color
Age Appropriateness: Primary
Use in a classroom:This book could be used to teach kids about different art styles, because of the unique style in which the author creates the drawings. It could also be used to teach the kids about fiction books and how to write one themselves.

Genre: Fantasy
Age: beginner to intermediate
Review/Critique: a girl has a dream about flying to a distant land where food falls out of the sky instead of weather. The people of this land give the food to the people on need and no one goes hungry. The book is fantasy because giant food does fall from the sky.
Medium: print ( )

This book was about Kate who dreamed of going on an adventure with her brother Henry to a land where it rained giant foods. They awaited their grandfather's tales of his vacation and dreamed up a wonderful place. This makes for a great fantasy because it's not possible for the children to drive a plane or for it to rain large food products on an island. ( )
