Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 1-3-- Gibbons' easily identifiable artistic style works well with her explanations of sometimes misunderstood weather-related terms. Drawings are appealing, attractively arranged, and closely matched to the textual information. Temperature, air pressure, moisture, and wind are broadly defined and illustrated. Each of the four areas is then broken down further: moisture is illustrated as rain, drizzle, hail, snow, etc. The term describing each type of weather phenomenon is highly visible in large type and is contained in a dialogue balloon that stands out from the accompanying illustration. One page of curious weather facts concludes the book. An attractive introduction for weather units in the primary grades, along with Gibbon's Weather Forecasting (Four Winds, 1987). --Carolyn S. Brodie, Kent State University, OH

I am a student teahcer. When I had to plan a unit for my kindergarteners about weather, I did not know how to teach it on their level. This book really helped me to come up with the right words to help the students understand what I was trying to get across to them. GREAT BOOK!!! I checked it out from the library at the school I am working at; however, I WILL be getting my own personal copy. Thank you Gail!!!

I checked out a gob of weather books when teaching my first-graders. This one was by far the best. It explained the weather in a simple, easy manner with wonderful illustrations. But it was not a 'baby' book. The author covered a wide variety of weather topics in language that engaged and taught. In a few short, clear sentences we were able to learn how to identify clouds or the types of wind and rain storms. I plan on purchasing this book since it will be used over and over for reference and for just plain fun.

I got this book for my grandson's 4th birthday, along with "My First Weather Station" from Plow and Hearth. He was starting to become interested in weather and was asking questions like, "Where does snow come from?" and "Why is it foggy?" This book answers many questions like that, and is quickly becoming one of his favorite books.

This has been a wonderful resource for my 3 and 4 year old boys as we are learning about the weather. The perfect balance of information and illustrations. This book does a very good job at explaining the terminology without dumbing it down. -Maggie D

We love all of Gail Gibbons books. Her books are clear and easy to understand. They are great, informative read-clouds now and will be perfect for reviewing again when the kids are reading them on their own. The books of Gail Gibbons we do not own, we usually borrow from the library. This is great for younger kids to learn basic weather words and for older to learn and understand more complex weather.

My 6-year old is fascinated with all things weather, so ordered this for him. When he saw the drawings, he thought it was for "little kids" but once he started reading it, he was in awe! Some very big words, but since the subject is one he loves, this will really boost his reading ability while educating him, too! He says "it's super awesome and really smart!"
