Misty the Cloud: Fun Is in the Air

Illustrated by Rosie Butcher
Look inside
New York Times bestselling author, Today co-host, and meteorologist Dylan Dreyer brings her beloved character Misty the Cloud to Step into Reading! Learn all about how wind forms in this Step 2 leveled reader.

This follow-up to the New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal bestseller is the perfect addition to Step into Reading!

When Misty and her friends head to the Sea Breeze Carnival, they ride the rides, pose for photos, and play their favorite games. Best of all, they enjoy the updraft, which is created by warm and cool air colliding. Nothing like a summer wind at the beach!

Step 2 Readers use basic vocabulary and short sentences to tell simple stories. They are perfect for children who recognize familiar words and can sound out new words with help.
Dylan Dreyer is a meteorologist for NBC News, a co-host of the 3rd Hour of Today, and the host of Earth Odyssey with Dylan Dreyer. She's covered hurricanes with 130 mph winds, but she loves a nice breeze when she walks her dog, Bosco. She's stood out in six-foot snowstorms (which is taller than her!), but she loves to go sledding with her sons, Calvin and Oliver. She's watched roads turn into rivers during strong thunderstorms, but she loves to splash in puddles. She's traveled the country (and has been to 49 states!) and the world...she's even been to the North Pole! She loves the weather and thinks the world is a fascinating place. She lives in New York City with her husband, Brian; their sons, Calvin and Oliver; and their dog, Bosco. Find her on Instagram and Twitter at @DylanDreyerNBC. View titles by Dylan Dreyer
Rosie Butcher grew up surrounded by books and dreamed of drawing pictures for children’s books. She has illustrated many projects, including Cat Deeley’s The Joy in You and Vanessa Bayer’s How Do You Care for a Very Sick Bear? Rosie lives in England. You can visit her on Instagram at @scrimmle.
