Frané Lessac is an American who has traveled all over the world. She now lives in Fremantle, Australia, but always looks forward to visiting Texas with her family.

The Big Apple from A to Z, both by Laura Krauss Melmed.From School Library Journal:
Grade 2–3—Rockwell introduces 11 different types of clouds according to their positions in the atmosphere. Besides the basics—fog, cirrus, stratus, and cumulus—she also provides information about cirrostratus, cirrocumulus, cumulonimbus, altostratus, altocumulus, nimbostratus, and stratocumulus. The author describes each type of cloud formation, explains where it is found in the sky, and tells what kind of weather is associated with it. Attractive folk-art-style paintings show the clouds and children playing or working outside. The information is solid but too much is covered for this to be considered a "Stage 1" book. Marion Dane Bauer's Clouds (S & S, 2004) is a better source for this age level.—Sandra Welzenbach, Villarreal Elementary School, San Antonio, TX
