"The photography is great....would be a nice addition to a classroom science library."--Science Books & Films
Illustrated with hundreds of captivating photographs, and written in a kid-friendly style, this informative guide answers the dozen of questions children ask about the sky and weather. They'll learn about humidity, fog, and storms; get an introduction to cloud types, and find out if it's true that you can tell direction from the sun. And there's much more too, including information on clouds mistaken for flying saucers, and celestial phenomena such as shooting stars and the Aurora Borealis. A wonderful resource for meteorology-minded kids!

Frank Staub is a photographer and writer specializing in nature, foreign cultures, and adventure sports. His photographs have been featured in more than 30 books, most of which he wrote, and he has received 7 national awards.
Grade 5-7–Clouds may be the main thrust here, but they are accompanied by data on air pollution, crepuscular rays, the atmosphere, air pressure, and a variety of other weather and astronomic subjects. The question-and-answer format will appeal to general browsers. Small, full-color captioned photos and diagrams abound. Experiments include making a rainbow with a garden hose, checking evaporation rates in sun and shade, and measuring the dew point. This volume will not supplant other titles on your shelves, but will provide enjoyment for curious browsers, and perhaps prove helpful to classroom teachers or homeschooling parents.–Patricia Manning, formerly at Eastchester Public Library, NY
