Heuy, Dewey, and Louie's Rainy Day by Kate Ritchey

Title: Huey, Dewey, and Louie's Rainy Day
Author: Kate Ritchey
Genre: Picture Book, Fiction
Reading Level: Ages 6 to 8

Huey, Dewey, and Louie's Rainy Day is a World of Reading Level 2 reader geared towards those that are reading with the help of a parent (i.e. someone that can help if the young reader has trouble with the longer story and more varied sentences).  The plot is about Huey, Dewey, and Louie spending a rainy day at their Uncle Donald's.  This makes it a fun and potentially inspiring read on a rainy day.

In this book, the Donald's nephews go over to play with Donald and it begins storming when they are about to go play outside.  After trying to entertain themselves with a game and making a mess as they create art, they are bored and Donald has fallen asleep reading the paper.  They then come up with the classic rainy day idea of building a fort and they are quite imaginative in creating it and pretending to protect it.

Overall this is a great book for young readers to expand their reading skills.  In particular, it seems like it a fun book for a rainy day not only because readers may relate to not being able to play outside, but also because the fort idea can inspire them to use their imaginations and entertain themselves with their own fort adventures.

Types of Readers Book Might Appeal To & Multiple Intelligence Categories

  • Those bored on a rainy day.
  • The colorful and expressive illustrations may help draw in visual learners. (Spatial-Visual)
  • Engage learners that like to do by building a fort first and then reading the book in the fort. (Bodily-Kinesthetic)
