Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Heather Welsh
Another book in the "Colors of" series, this entry beautifully shows and describes weather through the senses. Explore the pink and green northern lights and then turn to a page full of golden sunlight. Dodge a dust storm and then go skydiving in a clear blue sky. Put on your yellow raincoat because those thick gray clouds mean rain! Learn the warning signs of tornados and find out how fast lightning travels. Children won't even realize they are learning about reading a thermometer, what's inside clouds and that lightning is electricity. The book is appropriate for second graders if read aloud or independent third grade readers. The pictures are large, colorful and help young readers better understand the text. The color words are bold and painted the color they are describing to help younger readers learn their colors. The glossary in the back of the book will help younger readers understand more difficult terms such as "atmosphere" and "turbine." There are companion book suggestions as well as safe internet sites for research. Readers who enjoy this book might also enjoy others in the "Colors of" set, which includes insects, sports, the ocean and weather. Reviewer: Heather Welsh
