In "Weather," children will watch lightning strike, cloud formations taking shape and rainbows projected into the sky. Young explorers lift the flaps to reveal answers about the sun, seasonal weather, rainfall, dangerous weather, and much more. A great first knowledge of the natural world. Plus, a fun spot-the-difference game suddenly appears as the artwork amazingly changes.

Horn BookThe approach is visually appealing. NSTA RecommendsThis informative book will engage readers in a tactile way as they explore the text. . . . Some of the illustrations are labeled, providing additional nontextual information. This book would be a nice inclusion in a classroom or school library because it builds on the natural curiosity of young children. . . . Although the information is very general, it's appropriate for young children who have questions such as "Is the weather always colder at night?" or "Which colors are in a rainbow?" The general nature of the information can be used as a beginning point for further exploration by students.
