Children's Literature - Susan Treadway M.Ed.
Readers take a virtual journey across the globe while traveling through an extensive timeline to explore weather events, instruments, cycles, layers of earth's atmosphere, and climate change with experts to guide them. Books in the "True Book" series incorporate bold photographs that accompany descriptive text covering exploration as well as the history of meteorology. Snippets of uncommon facts about the topic are prominently featured by a prominent gold arrow and playful font. Lively colors enhance a study about fascinating sidelights, classic data, and additional questions for engaging students of all ages. Details are explained in a clear manner just as vocabulary is given within context. For additional intrigue, Find the Truth! presents a true or false introduction to the subject while The Big Truth! segment focuses on an extraordinary aspect in a bit more depth. Helpful sections in the books include true statistics, resources, important words, index, and about the author. It is worthy to note that the resources section contains a helpful listing of several books, organizations, web sites, and places to visit for further study. Youngsters embark on diverse guided tours in the "True Book" series, whose books contain the same format while showcasing a variety of scientists and their exciting careers studying the science of weather. Reviewer: Susan Treadway, M.Ed.
