Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 2–3—Rockwell introduces 11 different types of clouds according to their positions in the atmosphere. Besides the basics—fog, cirrus, stratus, and cumulus—she also provides information about cirrostratus, cirrocumulus, cumulonimbus, altostratus, altocumulus, nimbostratus, and stratocumulus. The author describes each type of cloud formation, explains where it is found in the sky, and tells what kind of weather is associated with it. Attractive folk-art-style paintings show the clouds and children playing or working outside. The information is solid but too much is covered for this to be considered a "Stage 1" book. Marion Dane Bauer's Clouds (S & S, 2004) is a better source for this age level.—Sandra Welzenbach, Villarreal Elementary School, San Antonio, TX

From Booklist

This entry to the long standing Let’s-Read-and-Find-Out Science Stage 1 series gives basic information about clouds in the easy-to-read picture-book format that is typical for the series. General information is covered, followed by more specific details about the 10 types of clouds and the kind of weather that each type portends. Double-page spreads portray panoramic scenes of children in various outdoor activities with the clouds (one type per page) hovering over them. The unique qualities of each type of cloud are given in two to three sentences of text. Two pages of back matter feature a few additional facts about clouds and simple instructions for making a cloud of your own. The open and uncluttered illustrations suit the topic well. All in all, this is a successful entry in the series. Preschool-Grade 1. --Randall Enos

Format: Paperback
Two children lie side by side on a blanket looking up at the sky. It's a peaceful country setting with cows, sheep and horse grazing nearby. They are looking up at the sky at the clouds moving across the skyline. "Most clouds are too far away to feel," but if you are around fog you can feel that. You can learn a lot about clouds just by looking at them. Their shapes, size, shade and how high up they are can tell you what the weather will be like. If you have an outside activity planned, it would be nice to know if the weather will be nice or stormy.

In this book you will learn what clouds are made up of, the different kinds of clouds (cirrostratus, cirrus, cirrocumulus, cumulonimbus, altostratus, altocumulus, cumulus, stratocumulus, nimbostratus, and stratus), what their names tell us, what they will do or not do if you see them, which clouds tell you it will get colder, which clouds tell you it will rain or snow, which tell you that it will rain or snow steadily, which ones tell you a thunderstorm is coming (take cover!), the importance of clouds and how you can tell the weather is going to change. If you learn all about clouds, you will be able to tell what the weather will be in advance, just like a meteorologist!

This is a nicely detailed, very informative book about clouds that will not only interest the young child, but also the adult. The illustrations are similar to folk art paintings and are very appealing. In the back of the book you will find a handful of cloud facts and will find instructions on how to "Create a Cloud" (adult participation is recommended). This is a Stage 1 book that explains "simple science concepts for preschoolers and kindergartners." Which cloud formations will make you run for cover? If you don't know the names of them, you just might want to read this book!

I really like the "Let's Read and Find out Science" series. These are great science books for elementary school and they are perfect for my first grader. They use familiar examples to introduce basic scientific concepts in a simple but fun way. They are interesting for both kids and adults. I have found them to be a valuable tool to teach these concepts to my kids.

We had a wonderful time learning about clouds. I recommend this book.

We discovered this series through my daughter's online public school. I was impressed by the books they sent her so I went out looking for more science books.

Clouds breaks down clouds by their level in the atmosphere and further explains what kind of weather they produce.

When my daughter pointed out the car window and said "Mom, look!! Cumulonimbus clouds!!" I knew my money had been well spent.

Well done! ;)

I bought this for my four year old grand daughter, an admirer of clouds, sunsets, stars, and moon. She loved it, learned the names and shapes, drew her own conclusions about a number of things. Reading it to her refreshed my memory of clouds and the science they display. It is a book for young children, old men, and everyone between.

This book is a wonderful resource. It explains all of the different types of clouds in language and pictures that young kids can understand. It also has a cool experiment how to make a cloud at the end. I love the series, we have quite a few of them. Very kid friendly and my son loves the experiments!

Small, easy-to-read, so this one is perfect to introduce science-based study of clouds to your little ones. Some of the information was even new and exciting for the older children. A perfect complement to our unit study of clouds!
