Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Lisa P. Hill
Clouds charge across the sky, lightning crashes down, and hail pummels the ground. Is this storm the beginning of a hurricane, typhoon, a raging tornado, or a fierce blizzard? Could you make a career advising people on the weather or chasing storms? These and other questions are answered in this simple science chapter book. There is even a "Sky Technology" section that discusses equipment used today to study weather and space. Each page highlights a new topic and is supported with interesting, colorful pictures. Students also find out about some basic storm facts, storms on other planets, and a few storm myths. New vocabulary words are bolded throughout the text. One simple experiment demonstrates how to make a simple tornado by using household materials, which can be completed outside the classroom or at home. At the end of the book, there are additional references to research storms. The final section offers inquiry questions with answers, and "Words to Know" to reinforce new vocabulary words. This book is in the "Science Matters" series. It highlights beginning information suitable to supplement first time book reports and is satisfactory for high-low readers.
