March – Leek’s Rainy Day
March’s Book of the Month. Leek can’t get out of the rain. The Foodies Books bring you stories from the veggie patch for each month of the year, and all the characters, scenery and weather are in season that month.
It was a gloomy, rainy March day in the garden. Leek was cross about the rain…
In this story, Leek is very focussed on his appearance and keeping his leaves dry. Although everyone else is making the most of the rain and mud to have fun, he is determined to see the rain as a problem.
The story lends itself to discussions about different kinds of weather. Our free downloadable activities this month explore the theme of weather in more depth, with activities to make a weather monitor, measure rainfall and make a mini cloud in a glass.
