Schmitty the Weather Dog #Giveaway

9 Dec

Schmitty 1

Schmitty the Weather Dog by Elly McGuire and Simon Estrada is such an adorable children’s book. When I received my copy in the mail, I flipped through it and loved the illustrations so much, I grabbed my four-year old, and we immediately read it together.

Set in New York City, this story tells of the dog’s master who wants desperately to be a meteorologist but struggles to learn the integral skills of weather prediction. Schmitty feels sorry for his “two-legged dad” and decides to take some action.  Through observing his surroundings, Schmitty begins to gain some legitimate forecasting skills. He then contacts a local news channel and sets up an audition for his master and him. Ultimately, Schmitty swoops in to save the day, and they both end up as meteorologists.

This sweet and well-written book could be read with your children at  home or added to a classroom library. This book would also make an excellent Christmas gift for the little guy or gal in your life. With beautiful illustrations, a fun plot, and a cuddly main character, children of all ages would be thrilled to experience this story.
