Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 5-8-- These series' entries feature attractive spreads filled with eye-catching illustrative materials and clear, concise writing. Invention surveys major areas of technology throughout history, with each spread showing the stages of development in one field (e.g., timekeeping, metalworking). Most captions include the approximate date of the invention pictured, but some years are not given, making it occasionally difficult to trace how each new step evolved. In Weather , the imaginative use of photographs helps to clarify many of the concepts. Reptile stands out because of the fascinating photographs, which are brilliantly lifelike and well chosen to demonstrate concepts discussed, educating readers in a way that words (or mediocre illustrations) cannot. The text is nicely balanced between straightforward factual data and intriguing bits of trivia, making the book useful both to browsers and report writers. Both gems and crystals are noted briefly in Symes's Rocks & Minerals (Knopf, 1988) from this series, but receive more expansive treatment (and all-new photographs) in the newer title. The dazzling, full-color photographs on uncluttered pages make it a visual treat. --Steven Engelfried, Pleasanton Library, CA

3rd graders love the Eyewitness series.
Linda Dugan
The subjects covered are the usual wide range of matters, typical of these DK publications, especially designed for younger readers.

Consistent with the other Eyewitness books; readable, packed with lots of interesting information in a very entertaining style.

A book about weather everything from the history of meteorology to the formation of hurricanes. There is a lot of information in each page, information about different equipment used to track and measure the weather. Photographs and graphics are used to describe the weather and how to track it. In the back of the book there are pages devoted to making a home weather station to track and record the weather. The book is indexed in the back for easy access to information. It makes the book a good choice to have for easy reference or a young student's weather project. The material is not presented in a boring matter. Some younger students may find too much information to understand at the first reading.

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Steven A. Peterson TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on September 6, 2008
Format: Hardcover
"Weather" is a particularly appropriate book to review now, as one hurricane/tropical storm after another seems to roil across the Atlantic. The first section is entitled "The restless air," and author Brian Cosgrove says: ". . .the very lowest level [of the atmosphere]. . .is forever on the move, boiling and bubbling in the sun's heat like a vast kettle on a fire."

The subjects covered are the usual wide range of matters, typical of these DK publications, especially designed for younger readers. Topics explored include forecasting the weather, the power of the sun, frost and ice, clouds--from birth on, thunder and lightning, and wind.

There is, too, weather is examined in different contexts--mountains, the sea, the plains. And if a kid gets interested in the weather, the last section shows how one can put together a home weather station. This would be a wonderful way for younger readers to actually study weather and learn in the process.

So, yes, another successful Eyewitness Book.

I had intended to buy the DK Eye Wonder Weather which I had checked out and liked at the library, but accidentally bought this DK Eyewitness book instead. I don't need the clip art CD or poster attached in the book, but some people like that kind of thing, which is probably why the CD and poster are included with the book. Most dissappointing: some of the pictures of clouds and landscapes, for example, are too grainy and poor quality compared to similar pictures in Eye Wonder. However, the pictures of weather instruments and some drawings are quite good quality. I only wish the entire book had crisp, clear, high-quality pictures. The book cover seems waterproof and durable; no jacket. Binding seems durable, but I have not had the book long enough to test its durability. The glossary and index in the back are useful. I love the DK books, and this Weather book is one reading children can reference again and again, and non-readers can enjoy for the colorful pictures.

If you know a child, or even an adult, who wants to get wise about weather than here's the book for you. A comprehensive and pictorial start for brewing meteorologists or just any lover of weather.

Purchased for a 3rd grade teacher, who teaches informational text. Very well received by both the teacher and students. 3rd graders love the Eyewitness series.
