Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4-8-A lively, upbeat presentation. Chock-full of solid information, this compendium includes lots of slightly offbeat, appealing observations, such as why snow can be different colors and the names of the winds in ancient Greece. The basic format of the book is two columns per page, but the layout is often altered by color photographs, fun facts, and children's journal pages that combine serious science and youthful eye views. Twenty-two projects are included; they range in difficulty from producing a rainbow with sunlight, a shallow pan, and a mirror to making a hygrometer with a foot-long piece of human hair and some cardboard. Numerous, attention-grabbing visuals illustrate experiments, the levels of the Earth's atmosphere, the shape of snowflakes at different temperatures, and much more. Students writing reports, and family members wanting to predict weather by methods more sophisticated than looking out the window, will find lots of fascinating information here.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Brenda Scott on November 9, 2006
Format: Paperback
What a wonderful book for anyone with even a passing interest in weather. A wealth of beautiful illustrations, both graphics and photographs, aided the well-written script. Rupp uses a clever device to appeal to kids of various ages and attitudes: the continuing weather diaries of two siblings, one a meticulous, precise older sister, the other a boy of infinite imagination and application. They give their versions of the same information with words and pictures, bringing elements across in a way that may have escaped the mere pedagogues among us. I read it with our 6 and 9 year old and was pleased to catch our 13 year old taking a peek when he thought he was alone. All boys. All interested.

This book is great for weather experiments for the kids. I used it for cub scouts and the boys loved it.
