What’s the weather like today? Let’s see! Award-winning author-illustrator Steve Light, a preschool teacher himself, draws on a morning routine beloved by many young children.

When Gus the rhino and Sully the mouse check out the weather each morning, they see and feel the same thing, but they experience it a different way. Bright sun is too hot for Gus and perfect for beach-loving Sully. Clouds inspire Gus’s imagination (“I see a bunny!”) but they just look like clouds to Sully. The wind is perfect for kite-flying for one, but threatens to blow someone small away. Whether rain or snow or sleet, Gus and Sully are on the spot, reporting back in their unique way. Wielding ink and watercolor, Steve Light ventures into an appealing new art style with a simple, funny board book ideal for children just beginning to explore the wide world around them.
Steve Light is the creator of the board books Black Bird Yellow Sun; Mama Tiger, Tiger Cub; Up Cat Down Cat; and Have You Seen My Lunch Box? Among his many picture books are Have You Seen My Dragon?, Have You Seen My Monster?, Road Trip! A Whiskers Hollow Adventure, and A Spider Named Itsy. He lives in New York City.

Two friends, a rhino named Gus and a mouse named Sully, explore the weather in this enchanting board book. Minimal text takes a backseat to illustrations that are humorous and capture the weather accurately. A fun read that will charm young and old alike. ­Highly recommended.
