Are tornados and twisters the same thing? Why does it rain? Stunning photos and simple text explain the wonders of weather to young children.

Images of puffy clouds, dramatic storms, and rainbows alternate with buoyant portraits of a diverse group of children experiencing the natural world. Seasons, precipitation, wind, clouds, storms, and climate change are all introduced in a format that younger children can grasp from a trusted name in children's nonfiction.

From the author-photographer behind the celebrated Hello Seasons! series, What's the Weather? continues Shelley Rotner's exploration of the world around us. Rotner has also worked as a National Geographic photographer and is a former kindergarten teacher. Back matter includes a statement from a climatologist and a thorough glossary.

Review quote

As with Rotner's other books, the layout and photography will draw viewers in.--Kirkus Reviews

The arrangement of topics allows each to flow smoothly into the next. Rotner's clearly written sentences seem to accompany the photos, rather than the other way around. . . . A worthwhile read-aloud choice for starting conversations or for introducing classroom units on weather.--Booklist
