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.
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
