Family Book Club: Ellie & The Rainy Day

Ellie & The Rainy Day

Written by: Kimberly Davis-Peters

Illustrated by: Jasmine Mills

A rainy day makes Ellie think the fun is all over, and she will have nothing to do for the day. Little did she know, her Mom is about to make the day special and fun. This book is all about perspective and how you look at things. At first, all Ellie could think about was her bright sunny day being ruined. Lucky for her, she has a Mom that knows how to have fun in any kind of weather.

Here are some questions to get your minds thinking, after you read this book as a family:

1. Have you ever had plans change, how did you react?

2. What do you like to do outside in the rain?

3. What is a song you like to sing in the rain?

4. What is your favorite rainy-day lunch?

5. Is there an indoor activity you like to do when the weather outside isn’t sunny?

6. Have you ever chased a rainbow in your car to try and find the end?

7. What is your favorite thing about rainbows?

8. Which illustration was your favorite and why?

9. Do you think Ellie had more fun because it was a rainy day?

10. What is your favorite type of weather?

Teaching children about perspective can be powerful. Ellie woke up and saw the weather and changed her frame of mind to think she would have a bad day. Her Mom was able to change that perspective and show her that the weather should not have that much power over her mood. She can have fun in any kind of weather, it is just a matter of finding the right things to do. A positive perspective on life young can help them keep that frame of mind throughout life.
