Description

It’s field-trip day for Miss Mingo’s multispecies class — but will each animal find a way to weather the weather on the path up to the observatory?

It’s a spring morning, and Miss Mingo and her class are ready to hike up High Hill to visit the weather station. Groundhog, the new student, predicts that the weather will be perfect. But as the animals climb, the temperature does too, and Panda seeks a shady spot while Hippo starts sweating red (it’s normal, not blood!). And that’s just the beginning! From hail and swirling winds to pouring rain and a sudden chill, everyone from Ant to Alligator is learning about some crazy atmospheric changes. Sprinkled with fascinating facts about weather and animal habits, this charming, one-of-a-kind class trip is sure to bring sunny smiles.
