Hello! Alicia here with a brand new feature for our blog:What to Read Wednesdays! Because I'm starting up the second season of my podcast, From Cover to Reel, I thought I would share with you guys the things I'm reading that I really love. Not all the books I feature here will be from the podcast but most probably will be, because that's what I'm reading lately.
I have loved reading for...forever! I can't remember a time where I didn't like it. I love reading everything. The more I can read and learn, the better! My favorite books of all time I have shared on other bookish posts we've made. The Wizard of Oz, Gone With the Wind, and Harry Potter being just a few of them. I'm so excited to start this new feature and share my passion for books with you.
This week I'm sharing a picture book written by Judi Barrett and illustrated by Ron Barrett, Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs.
This cute storybook tells the story of the town ChewandSwallow where instead of watching the weather report to see if they need an umbrella, the townsfolk watch to see if they need a fork or a spoon. It "rains" food down 3 meals a day. That is until the food starts coming down too large and giant pancakes close down the school! What are the people of ChewandSwallow to do?
Guys! You have to read this book if you haven't yet. My son loves it. Our copy is so well worn I need to tape the cover back on (oops)! The story is simple and so imaginative. And the illustrations are so fun! We love reading it together and seeing all the new details we can find in the pictures. Our favorite is a guy with a giant elbow macaroni noodle on his head.
What's even more fun is that there are sequels to this book: Pickles to Pittsburg and Planet of the Pies! I haven't read these yet but I'm looking forward to it. I can wholeheartedly recommend the first book though. I love it!
And this will be the subject of our podcast this month, so if you read it and watch the movie (it's on Netflix right now) let us know what you think of the movie adaptation.
