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!
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! ;)
We had a wonderful time learning about clouds. I recommend this book.
At the end of the book, there is segment featuring more cloud facts, and, a make-a-cloud project. The book is illustrated with colorful pictures throughout which makes this not only an educational read, but an engaging one as well.
