Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 1-4-The most useful part of these titles is the list of safety rules that appears at the end. Unfortunately, the texts are confusing and information is sometimes missing between sentences. For example, Storm states, "The water rises into the air as vapor," and the next sentence says, "Rain clouds quickly become tropical thunderstorms." Children may not realize that the rising vapor forms clouds. Rising Waters, which discusses the formation of floods and the damage floods produce, is the clearest of the trio. The most confusing entry is Twisters, which discusses updrafts, downdrafts, and thunderstorms in a jumble as twisty as a tornado. The vocabulary in each book is simple, and the print is fairly large, with only several sentences to a page. However, youngsters usually prefer photos and may not be satisfied with the digitally produced illustrations, although the shapes are bold and the colors are bright. The specified Web site acts as a search engine to appropriate links. Melvin and Gilda Berger's Do Tornadoes Really Twist? (Scholastic, 2000) discusses hurricanes and tornadoes in a better-organized, question-and-answer format and gives a great deal of information using easy vocabulary.-Lynda Ritterman, Atco Elementary School, Waterford, NJ

Review

Hurricanes are severe weather systems that can cause a lot of damage and can have very frightening effects. This book explains the science of these systems and why making a landfall on an island does not stop a hurricane. A website is included that will h --Science and Children

In these additions to the Amazing Science series, author Rick Thomas explains weather to young elementary students in an inviting and informative manner. Each brightly illustrated book of approximately 20 pages explains a weather phenomenon and its causes --NSTA Recommends
