What’s the Weather? a What, Why or Where Book

We rated this book:


Kids are curious about the world around them, asking questions like “What makes the wind blow?” or “Why do the clouds change shapes every day?” It is great to have a well-written, well-researched non-fiction book that is also filled with beautiful photographs and text that is succinct, yet written at a level for youngsters to listen to or read on their own (for emerging readers). This book will not only teach without being didactic but will engage youngsters with the combination of that text with bright, colorful photos that accompany and support the text. The book asks questions as readers go through which will help the adult reading or helping emerging readers to engage youngsters in critical thinking. Four pages of back matter include some activities to do with youngsters such as teaching them to track and chart temperature changes or observe and describe clouds, learning the difference between them, and discovering what kind of weather they might indicate. This is not a science textbook nor does it pretend to be. But it is a really good introduction to the things that make up our weather and how to recognize them.
