Freddy the Frogcaster and the Big Blizzard { Review & Giveaway }

Today I get to not only tell you about a super cute story but I also get to give one of you a copy of your own! 

Freddy the Frogcaster and the Big Blizzard was sent to me for a review! 
The book was written by Janice Dean which has been a forecasting the weather for Fox News since 2004. She is a mother to two young boys and she really loves sharing her science background with all. She lives in NYC which I have personally been to and it was the greatest trip of my life!

Winter is coming and its my least favorite time of the year. I adore Spring however I can think of many perks to Winter.

~ Snuggles because of cold days ~
~ More down time ~
~ Comfort food ~

Those are just some of my favorites!

With Winter just around the corner Freddy the Frogcaster helps interest kiddos in learning a little about weather! I love books that double as a great fun story but also teach valuable skills too!

Freddy is on a class field trip (we all love those around here) and he takes notice of a big blizzard moving toward Lilypad. He has to help get the advisory out because Sally Croaker is busy and so is Polly Woggins. Freddy started telling about the storm coming and then he got to meet someone new and in charge - The Mayor! He then told him and started making a list of what everyone needed to stay safe during this blizzard.

Freddy got home and gathered supplies for him a blizzard kit but also for Polly because she was having to go report on it and he was worried for her.

Not long after the blizzard started the power went out and thankfully he had all his supplies already gathered.

The next day he was so very worried about Polly that when the power finally came back on he was glued to it to find out if she was alright. The news van had gotten stuck in the snow and if it hadn't been for his kit he packed and made for Polly they would have been in serious trouble.

Janice Dean did a wonderful job on this book but I also have to say that the illustrations by Russ Cox are adorable. 

My family enjoyed reading this book and I am happy to have you a copy to offer to your family too!

  1. Aww i hope I win! We use a frog for our weather this would go so well with it!! Thanks for the giveaway!

  2. Mine is autumn I love the colors, and I really like winter because of the snow and blanket of white plus Christmas so I really cannot decided between the 2. Thanks for a chance to win!

  3. I love Autumn--the crisp cool weather, the beautiful colors!

  4. September! LOL I know that isn't a season, but it's generally dry and cool, but not yet cold. August is wicked hot (for VT) and October is colder and we start getting snow. Spring is rainy and we call it mud season here. So, yeah. September.

  5. I'm a summertime girl. Not that I like it horribly hot, but I like when the kids are off school. And I hate being cold. I guess I'm really a May and September weather person. At least for my climate.

  6. There's something I like about all the seasons but if I had to pick a favorite, it would be winter because of Christmas. I love the warmth that family, holiday gatherings and music and everyone seems to be in such a good mood that time of year :)


Thanks so much for stopping by and reading about our journey! Leave me something that will make me happy! Have a blessed day!
