Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - James Rutkowski
Brought to you by the Weather Channel and filled with colorful pictures and diagrams, this book introduces the middle school reader to the wide range of natural forces that form and shape our earth and create our weather. Starting with the structure of our planet, each topic pressents the reader with the scientific background and explanation, a set of facts, and a list of the terms and definitions commonly used to describe this force of nature. You will find information about our Sun, earthquakes, volcanoes, tornadoes, hurricanes, and other forms of severe weather, and each section is filled with information, facts, and pictures. Tips on how to stay safe in the event of a weather alert, along with the scales used to measure the intensity of tornadoes, hurricanes and earthquakes, provide the reader with a deeper understanding of the event and the tremendous forces that can occur. Completing this reading is information about people versus nature, renewable resources, and protecting our planet, along with an extensive glossary defining the terms used throughout the book. This book is a great introduction to the study of our planet and the weather patterns that shape our earth. Reviewer: James Rutkowski
