"Excellent...[A] strength of the volume is the accuracy and sophistication of the science that is presented, without losing simple sentence structure and the clear presentation of ideas."--Science Books & Films
Wind and rain, snowflakes and sunshine: all kids wonder how the weather works. How can we forecast whether there will be blue skies or rain? Why do we have thunder and lightning? Answer these questions and more with entertaining experiments and other smart science activities geared towards youngsters in the second and third grades.

Grade 2-4--This informative book provides answers to the questions children tend to ask about the weather, such as "Why is the sky blue?" and "Why does my shirt sometimes stick to me on hot days?" Each answer is demonstrated by a simple experiment that includes an explanation of what happened. Important terms are set in bold type and defined in context. The activities mostly require supplies that are readily available and need a minimum of adult supervision, although children are advised to ask for help with some procedures. Harpster's humorous, color cartoon illustrations amplify the text. Enjoyable, and good for reports.--Cynde Suite, Bartow County Library System, Adairsville, GA
