Grade 3-5–These overviews provide bare-bones facts on a wide variety of subtopics. For example, Climate Change includes a time line of Earth' climates and briefly describes each one, outlines the various factors that can cause changes, discusses global warming and its consequences, and lists some things that people can do (though the measures described can only be accomplished by adults or by the government). Apart from the information found in How Weather Works and Watching Weather, the material in this series is available in other titles. How Weather Works is useful because it features easy-to-understand graphics and a text that explains the layers of the atmosphere, what causes seasons, the water cycle, and how warm and cold currents move through the oceans. Watching Weather has fewer diagrams, but kids with a meteorological bent will enjoy learning how the information in the weather forecast is gathered, and how to interpret it in more detail. All of the books have large color photos and computer-generated illustrations. END
