Children's LiteratureThis addition to the "I Like Science!" series is written in simple language and generously illustrated with photographs to appeal to the youngest of science students. After an explanation of what weather is, readers are introduced to a meteorologist, or weather scientist, named Harold Brooks. Subsequent chapters inform youngsters about the job of a meteorologist and what it entails. How do they forecast the weather? And what do weather watches and weather warnings mean? Included is an interesting explanation of how thunderstorms start tornadoes and how Harold Brooks, by studying past storms and entering the facts into the computer, can create a model to help him anticipate the movement of approaching storms. Students are shown how to simulate a twister using an empty soda bottle, water, soap and glitter. In addition to a "Words to Know" section there is also a listing of resources for further study. 2004, Enslow Publishers, Ages 6 to 8.
