Review:

"A class field trip up High Hill to a weather observatory at the top offers ample opportunities for Harper to share intriguing tidbits of information about animals and weather in this third picture book about Miss Mingo the flamingo and her students. A new student, Groundhog, joins the class and quietly predicts perfect weather, but heat, humidity, hail, and frozen fog prove him wrong — or so it seems. Along the way, readers learn about the various animals' habits and reactions to the weather (hippos secrete moisturizing 'blood sweat' when they are hot and dry, and narwhals may use their tusks to gauge temperature and barometric pressure). Packed with fascinating details and realistic classmate interactions, it's a treat for animal lovers. Ages 4 — 7." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
