Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
Weather--what it is and why it is important to us is the focus. Gilles intersperses plenty of good factual information in her nice selection of weather activities. Some of the projects will even result in a tasty treat such as sun-dried apples or will just be pure fun such as creating baked raindrops or paper snowflakes. For each major weather day--sunny, cloudy, rainy, snowy and windy--kids are invited to use their senses to detect the weather. For example, on a windy day walk, you can see the leaves and flags blowing, hear the noise as the wind rattles windows, and depending on where you live the wind can bring smells, and of course, you can feel the wind. This book would be useful in elementary school classrooms and for homeschoolers. The projects use items easily obtained, they are fun, and they will help kids understand our world and weather in particular. The cover is full-color while the illustrations and text are rendered in black and blue. 1996, Storey Publishing, Ages 6 up, $9.95. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot—Children's Literature
