#Review of Mira Forecasts the Future by @kellandrewsPA Lissy Marlin @NightOwlReviews

 
 
Telling the future is a gift: you either have it, or you don’t. And Mira, daughter of the famous fortune teller Madame Mirabella, just doesn't. When Madame gazes into the crystal ball, magic swirls. When Mira looks . . . nothing. Then one day Mira gets a pinwheel and a windsock, she finds her own form of “magic” in the science of predicting the weather—and saves the day for everyone! This engaging tale, with a fun touch of science thrown in, helps kids understand that we all have our own special talent.





Kell Andrews grew up in a household obsessed with the weather forecast. Today she lives with her husband and two daughters outside Philadelphia, where they enjoy rainy days as much as the sunny ones. Mira Forecasts the Future is her first picture book, and she is also the author of one middle-grade novel (Deadwood, Spencer Hill Press).

Lissy Marlin is a US-based illustrator with a passion and love for animation, visual development, and children's books. She was born and raised in the Dominican Republic and studied illustration at the University of the Arts of Philadelphia. Her main purpose as an artist is to make people smile with beautiful and inspiring illustrations.


This was a wonderful little book about how to predict the weather.  It starts off with Mira wanting to predict the future like her mom but she finds out that she just doesnt have it.  We really loved that this book has kids strive to try new things when what they want to doesnt work out.  Mira found something that she could be passionate about and it worked so well.  We also loved that it gave you a little short over view how you could use things to do your own weather forecasting.  (which we will be doing here in the coming few weeks)  

This is a great book for all ages with colorful pictures and a great story!
