Synopsis: A photographic introduction to air examines its role as a finite resource while presenting such images as a free-falling parachutist, a blacksmith's bellows, a clothesline, rust, and a prism. By the author of Water and Earth.

From School Library Journal: Grade 4-6?This is the third in Robbins's quartet on medieval elements: Water, Earth, Air, and the yet-to-be-published Fire. As in the previous volumes, the author's personal musings are richer than the factual material report writers crave. He considers kites and parachutes but describes hurricanes and tornadoes. He ponders seed dispersion and rainbows while presenting radiation and meteors. The whole is tied together by his trademark black-and-white photographs, deftly and artistically hand-tinted. Robbins's carefully chosen palettes emphasize what he wishes readers to see in his writing, and complement his brief text page by page. For students seeking concrete, hard-edged facts, Lisa Yount and Mary Rodgers's Air and/or Mary Hoff and Mary Rodgers's Atmosphere (both Lerner, 1995) may be more useful, but for those who see the spectrum in raindrops and are aware of the sweeping currents in our invisible planetary envelope, Robbins's book is like Baby Bear's bowl of porridge?just right!?Patricia Manning, Eastchester Public Library, NY
