Product Description

From Booklist

Gr. 3-6. This is too big to fit on the nonfiction shelves, but its large size gives some of the illustrations real impact. Each double-page spread introduces a new subject, such as lightning, tornadoes, or wildfires. A paragraph of text introduces the topic, with other paragraphs serving as extended captions for the photographs--or occasionally for the diagrams--which make up the book's most impressive feature. Clear, colorful, and dramatic, the eye-catching photos will draw browsers as well as children seeking information for reports. Plenty of books offer more information on various aspects of weather, but even students researching specific topics will find themselves browsing widely through this impressive volume. An attractive book, particularly for visual learners. Carolyn Phelan

5.0 out of 5 stars My 6-year-old loves this book Dec 19 2012
By C. Beth - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
We checked this book out from the library repeatedly for my 6-year-old, who is fascinated with extreme weather. This book has plenty of info on hurricanes, tornadoes, etc. (along with more "boring" weather facts!) We finally bought our own copy!

1.0 out of 5 stars This was a requested reading from my In 2 Books pen pal.. May 31 2010
By TC - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am a reading tutor and am always encouraging students to stretch themselves. This book was chosen by my pen pal student sponsored by In 2 Books. It was a great choice. Easy to understand and read and the pictures are wonderful. We both learned a lot of things we did not know, especially about lightening.
