    Awesome pictures!

    This book was purchased for my nine year old son who loves weather and anything to do with it. The pictures in the book are incredible! There's a lot of interesting facts in the book as well. He has shown the book to every family member that has visited and it's amazing the stories he tells about the pictures from what he remembers reading. Te adults love the book as well. I'm glad we purchased this book for him, it'll be something that will reamin on his bookshelf even as he grows.
