About the Author:

Rebecca Rupp has written more than a dozen books for children and adults, including Weather! and How Carrots Won the Trojan War. She holds a PhD in cell biology and biochemistry and has written hundreds of articles for magazines, including Country Journal, Early American Life, Mother Earth News, Natural History, and Utne Reader. She lives in Vermont.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-8-A lively, upbeat presentation. Chock-full of solid information, this compendium includes lots of slightly offbeat, appealing observations, such as why snow can be different colors and the names of the winds in ancient Greece. The basic format of the book is two columns per page, but the layout is often altered by color photographs, fun facts, and children's journal pages that combine serious science and youthful eye views. Twenty-two projects are included; they range in difficulty from producing a rainbow with sunlight, a shallow pan, and a mirror to making a hygrometer with a foot-long piece of human hair and some cardboard. Numerous, attention-grabbing visuals illustrate experiments, the levels of the Earth's atmosphere, the shape of snowflakes at different temperatures, and much more. Students writing reports, and family members wanting to predict weather by methods more sophisticated than looking out the window, will find lots of fascinating information here.

Book Description Storey Books, United States, 2003. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Do you know what would happen if the Earth s atmosphere suddenly disappeared? Deprived of oxygen and bombarded by ultraviolet radiation, our bodies would swell, our blood would boil and our eardrums would explode. Is there a kid on the planet who wouldn t think that information was just too cool for words? As a home schooling mum (with a Ph.D. in microbiology) author Rebecca Rupp learned first hand that kids respond best to scientific information when it is presented in a way that is fun, lively and off-beat. To serve as guides through the book, Rupp has created a brother-and-sister team, Jemima and Rodney. The two siblings have a right brain / left brain rivalry going on: Jemima is all about facts; Rodney likes to let his imagination run wild. Kids will relate to these smart, edgy and brainy characters. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9781580174206
