Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Weather junkies and those who like to scrutinize charts will be entertained by this folksy work, which is chock-full of information, lists, and accounts of personal experiences involving extreme weather by meteorologist and TV personality Evans. Included are sections on tornadoes, hurricanes, and blizzards, with a good amount of information on each and a healthy dose of photos and diagrams sprinkled throughout. Each section includes a lengthy True Bill Evans Weather Story detailing Evans’ harrowing experiences with each type of phenomenon. The final section is a hodgepodge of information and lists about droughts, floods, tsunamis, volcanoes, and earthquakes, and additional extreme weather, such as thunderstorms. The strange occurrence of creatures falling from the sky is covered only briefly. Although the cover proclaims that experiments are included, there is only one experiment and a few lists of websites to find others. The blue-toned photos might be a deterrent to some. Enjoyable for browsing but of limited use for research or reference because of the absence of an index. Grades 5-8. --Randall Enos

Review

Format: Paperback
A must have book for students and adults who really enjoy learning about weather. It educates through entertainment. A very funny book as well as very informative. Bill tells stories of his chasing tornadoes, flying through hurricanes, and being on the top of Mt. Washington in a tremendous snow storm.
Every page has funny titles and enlightening information on weather. Everything you need to know about weather as a beginner is in his book.

Bill Evans, an expert in Weather, Meteorology and forecasting is also a great storyteller as he delivers "IT'S RAINING FISH AND SPIDERS." The research shows to be excellent, along with myths, charts, and illustrations. The topics covered include a variety of weather conditions including hurricanes, snowflakes, and lightning. This unique book peaks the interest of children and adults as well, with awesome photos. In addition, the author includes his own experience in different weather situations. He provides simple at-home experiments that are not expensive, includes many facts about the natural world, and spices some pages with humor. I highly recommend this fascinating book to young adults, parents, and teachers. The author is not only an expert on Mother Nature, but his knowledge is a great contribution to science projects, much needed in schools for the curious mind.

Love this book! It is especially great for teachers as students will get a kick out of looking through it and having the teacher use it as a supplemental resource. I do wish the pictures were in color though.

I bought this for my 8 year old grandson who loves science, reading and discussing it as well. I think he is enjoying it when I ask him about it and he seems to have gotten a lot of information during "Sandy"
