Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Heidi Hauser Green
Here we have a good primer to a topic that affects us all and fascinates many: weather. Rainbows, clouds, water, rain, winds, hurricanes, and much more, this book seems to have it all. Readers will learn facts such as that a rainbow is actually a circle although we see only an arc, and that the windiest place in the world is in Antarctica. Cold weather, hot weather, climate change, and weather forecasting—it is all here, albeit in an elementary fashion. The final two-page spread provides information about weather professionals. Full-color photographs nearly fill every page, although the characters of the “Magic School Bus” series are superimposed over some, giving some passages a casual and conversational tone. Mini-essays ostensibly written by the young “School Bus” students appear on each two-page spread, modeling academic engagement with the subject matter. Includes a page of “Words to Know” with fifteen terms and definitions. This book is a nonfiction companion to the “Magic School Bus” series. Reviewer: Heidi Hauser Green; Ages 4 to 8.
