These Weather Fairy books by Daisy Meadows (hey... I wouldn't put my real name on them either) are wholly unremarkable. I suppose they're harmless enough for K-3 grade kids, but there's nothing to distinguish them. The writing is tediously simplistic, the stories are unimaginative, and the illustrations uninspiring. I read a couple to my kids and they never asked for them again... and they ask for everything again.

This may seem harsh criticism for books so obviously targeted at young girls, but compare these to some of the exception children's literature out there (H. A. Rey, Beatrix Potter, Maurice Sendak, Ludwig Bemelmans, Dr. Seuss, Kay Thompson, Arnold Lobel, etc., etc., etc) and their mediocrity becomes quite clear. Something intended to encourage kids to read doesn't have to aim so low. I'd argue for the advantages of the opposite approach.

My daughters both enjoyed these Fairy books. Age 7 to 9ish
My daughter has read and reread these books several times between the ages of 8 and 11! Fun series for girls
my grandaughter loved these books and read them all and I love that she is reading because I also love books
My daughter loves this series of books - the biggest problem we have is that she won't stop after one chapter. She's 5, so we're reading them to her now, but soon she'll be re-reading them herself. We started with book 1 of the Rainbow Fairies and are now on the Weather Fairies Series. I highly recommend them!
I like the series and the book because it has a lot of excitement and fun pictures of the fairies :)
Excellent service, daughter very pleased with purchase
