Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 3-5-To be a meteorologist, just like Perez of the Weather Channel, all readers need to do is be curious, persistent, and work hard. That is the basic message of this light work, which offers children some general vocational guidance. It focuses on the path of one meteorologist who began her career in the military, and it does not discuss alternative routes to success. The writing in places is awkward, causing the personal reactions and insights to lack credibility. The childlike color illustrations are not well done, and several are difficult to comprehend. The most useful page is about the American Meteorological Society, which includes addresses for several interesting and informative Web sites. Unless you have a specific need for materials on careers in science for girls, Mark Breen and Kathleen Friestad's The Kids' Book of Weather Forecasting (Williamson, 2000), which provides simple activities to get children excited about weather, is a better choice.

Format: Hardcover
I've got to say. I love that this book distinguishes between man and woman meteorologists. I don't want my daughter thinking there is any chance she can just be a meteorologist. I want her to set the bar low, be the best woman meteorologist she can be. As a mother, it's important for me to protect her from disappointment!

The best part of this book is the map feature. Providing such a useful tool is a huge added bonus for this book. Sure, it might be missing a few states and a few states are a little misplaced; but we all know us women have a horrible sense of direction anyways! So, it works.

You've decided to trademark the word "woman" as well. Genius! That's our word, let's take it back!! Girl power!! I'll definitely be getting my daughter this book. Thanks Kim Perez! I think this book may be even more useful than your work on the Weather Channel, and that's saying something!
