Format: Paperback
Everywhere on earth we have "weather," but what kind of weather we have depends on the area in which we live. For example, in India they have only two seasons. During the winter it is very dry, but the "Summer monsoons bring LOTS of rain." We need rain in order for our crops to grow, but if there is too much it can also devastate them. Around the world we experience hailstorms, tornados, sandstorms, blizzards, monsoons, hurricanes, thunder and lightning. Some of these forces can be destructive, but the "wind can help clean the air" and weather cools and heats our planet so it is just right for life.

In this book you'll get a glimpse at many different types of weather. You'll also learn about where the worst storms are in our solar system, you'll get to see homes that protect people from the elements, how animals protect themselves during storms, you learn some "weather words" and you'll even learn a few weather related jokes. "What did one lightning bolt say to the other?" You might know the answer already, but if you don't you'll have to read the book to find out.

This is an elementary look at weather and the forces of nature for the beginning reader. The reader may need some help deciphering a few of the words, but many like the word "hailstones" can be figured out by looking at the photographs. The photography is very appealing and will entice the reader more than the text. This would be an excellent book to read and discuss in the homeschool or classroom setting.

This "magazine", has great pics. that's all I can really say good for it. My daughter has been really fascinated by storms, particularly tornadoes. But this doesn't break it down about how or why they happen at all, just tells you the different kinds of storm that are out there. It was a bummer!

Came very quickly :). I purchased this book because I needed an Expository (real pictures) on storms for the pre-school age. This is perfect! Great pictures and descriptions inside. Plus there is a fun little movement exercise that can be done with the children inside the back cover.

We bought this for a 7-year old girl who is somewhat afraid of bad weather and storms; our thought was to demystify them somewhat for her. She thinks this book is great, and so does her older brother, who is reading somewhat more difficult weather books. This series of books seems well-written and would be well-received by almost any child.

I bought this for a very bright 8 year old. He informed me that the pictures were so cool they would make my eyes pop1 He was able to read it easily and did so repeatedly. When he took it to school his teacher and the other children were so impressed he immediately asked for more "true" books.

Awesome book! A little on the easy side reading for our 1st grader, but still full of info & great pictures. My granddaughter is 1st grade & she loved a NatGeo Kids magazine I picked up a couple weeks ago. I can't wait to give her this. I decided to order direct from Amazon rather than do the subscription based on numerous reviews concerning subscription/renewal issues. It is full of info & pictures & is gift quality!

Adding to the din of accolades. My 2 1/2 year old loves this book. Like other children, she is fascinated by storms and weather and in this case, her interest is in lightning. This is a simple overview of storm types with large print and a large photograph of each type of storm condition, about eight in all, with a summary of what we just read at the end. No details about how weather or storms begin, end, why or how, but a lovely introduction for a young, inquisitive mind. We love it and read it over and over. We will purchase more in the series and pass them on.

For deeper details on thunderstorms, we enjoy http://www.amazon.com/Flash-Crash-Rumble-Franklyn-Branley/dp/0064451798 which provides greater scientific detail on the whys and hows of thunderstorms and precipitating weather conditions. Written by a scientific weather expert, he has written 150 scientific books on weather for young children and find them wonderfully easy to understand with gorgeous illustration. Here is the tornado book one reviewer wanted to find. http://www.amazon.com/Tornado-Alert-Lets-Read---Find-Out-Science/dp/0064450945/ref=sr_1_10?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1406485218&sr=1-10
