Lightning! (Hello Reader! Science Series)by Lorraine Jean Hopping, Jody Wheeler
A clear and concise text describes the incredible power of lightning and its positive and negative effects on living things.
School Library JournalGr 1-4-These two beginning chapter books will whet the appetites of young scientists. Hopping introduces children to an amazing and deadly natural phenomenon. Many interesting facts about the study of lightning from the historical (Ben Franklin) to the modern (today's computer technology) are included as well as cultural connections (Zeus) and the experiences of people who have survived being struck by lightning. The watercolor illustrations include maps, diagrams, and action scenes. McNulty shares information about bats through her memories of a summer spent in a house filled with these winged creatures. Full- and double-page illustrations show various family members reacting to the animals. This combination of personal narrative and facts is one that children will find appealing and informative.-Maura Bresnahan, Shawsheen School, Andover, MA Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
