One of my favorite classes in college was Children’s Literature. It took a lot of time reading picture and chapter books, but it brought back a lot of childhood memories. One memory was when I was in elementary school and heard the book Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs by Judi Barrett for the first time. There was just something special about the story and characters thanks to the amazing illustrations by Ron Barrett. I recall dreams of being swept into the world of Chewandswallow where the days meals rained down from the sky onto the land below. How neat it would be to have food prepared for you without cooking. I can not wait to see this book come to life in the movies this fall.
Reading books with my boys allows all of our imaginations to run wild. In the upcoming weeks, I plan on reading some new books with NHL. I want to hear what he thinks and learns from the books. Hopefully this will be a fun experience that I can share with everyone and NHL will remember for years to come.
So my question for this week:
If you lived in the town of Chewandswallow, what would you like to rain from the sky to eat and why?
Thanks to Kailani at An Island Life for starting this fun for Friday. Please be sure to head over to her blog to say hello and sign the Mr. Linky there if you are participating.
I LOVE this book also and I JUST found out today that there was going to be a movie… CAN’T WAIT!!!!
Ideally, I would like a little diet pepsi rain and some baked ziti. Although, I would certainly settle for chicken enchiladas as well- lol.

It can rain anything as long as I don’t have to cook. What a fun sounding book!!! I will have to find that at the library and read it to my boys.

I don’t think I’ve read that book. Sounds fun. I think right now, I’d take jelly beans raining from the sky … Jelly Belly brand. I’m sure I’ll get my fill of jelly beans for the year, though, by the time Easter rolls around!
