Words and photos by April Pulley Sayre
Feel the Fog is a beautiful example of a non-fiction picture book.
Beautiful in artwork, the photos are crisp and clear. They show the haze of fog covering and hiding the world,
Beautiful in words, the lyrical text is informative and flowy. On every page the reader is taught about fog in brief rhyming phrases.
The backmatter is grouped into short paragraphs that address specific questions a child may have about fog like how fog clears and what they’re made of.
While it is non-fiction it reads like a story and kids like to come back to and read again and again. And it’s one that adults can still enjoy after the 3rd read of the day.
The author has a whole series called Weather Walks and after reading (and loving) Feel the Fog, we’ll be looking into her others as well.
