It’s Raining Frogs and Fishes!

It’s Raining Frogs and Fishes: Four Seasons of Natural Phenomena and Oddities of the Sky
© 1992 Jerry Dennis; illustrations by Glenn Wolff
323 pages

It’s Raining Frogs and Fishes is a collection of nearly forty essays on the many mysteious of the heavens. While I initially thought this to be a book of weather, auther Jerry Dennis covers the sky in total — writing essays on the animals that soar through it and the natural and artificial bodies that inhabit it.The essays are divided seasonally, each season starting with an introductory essays. Essays regarding year-round occurances, like eclipses, are sorted into summer. Dennis’ essays should be quite lucid to any reading level: I imagine I could’ve read this as a child, provided I had the patience. Most of the essays were fascinating to me, and they covered a wide range of topics — migratory patterns,  mating rituals, the magnificent fury and beauty of natural weather systems, animal sensitivity to environmental changes, fog, and much more. I’d reccommend this as a breezy and interesting read to lay readers.
