Temperature Story: Cold Snap

If, like me, you're a fan of Marjorie Priceman's How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World, you will love her illustrations in a new book, Cold Snap, written by Eileen Spinelli.  Feeling a bit jealous of the snowy weather reports in other parts of the country, my only alternative was to read about a week of falling temperatures in the town of Toby Mills. By Friday night in this freezing town, the cold residents are happy to gather for a time of merriment with a bonfire, hot cider, sugar-on-snow candy, and singing.

The book would be a perfect introduction to the concepts of temperature and hot-warm-cool-cold as described in the Fahrenheit and Celsius poems, available on the Math Learning Center website as a free download.

  1. Hi there I live in southern Australia (the cooler part of the country) and our temps in Celcius for the next 7 days are 39° 44° 31° 36° 41° 38° 37°...

    1. Lucky you!!!!!!!! We're FREEZING (with no snow!)

  2. Huge Marjorie Priceman fan here so I will be checking this one out. Rarely any snow here in South Alabama, but at least we don't freeze that often either. In fact, I think it is supposed to be 80 tomorrow. Oy!

    1. Jealous!!! It's 30-something and raining here!


Thank you for leaving me a message. I love comments almost as much as I love chocolate! And I do LOVE chocolate. :)
