Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs - Judi Barrett, Ron Barrett

Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs is one of my favorite books to this day. I love all of the illustrations and the cute text that goes along with it. I would use this book in my 2nd grade class and introduce making predictions. I would ask the students, based on the illustrations and title what they thought the book was about. At the end, we would infer whether our predictions were correct and "why" or "why not" food falling from the sky would be a good thing. There are so many cute activities and a movie that could follow the lesson!
