Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This box set, which includes materials for making a weather station and a book, has been designed to observe and understand weather. The weather station consists of a corrugated plastic frame that supports two thermometers, an anemometer, a wind vane, gustometer and rain gauge. These instruments are examined in detail, with discussion of what they measure and the pertinent phenomena. Dry and wet bulb thermometers are included for measuring relative humidity. Charts graph the changes in heat stress and wind chill factors. A manometer is included for measuring atmospheric pressure, with maps and legends explaining the symbols meteorologists use to indicate weather systems and fronts. The Beaufort scale describes wind activity, and a chart gives wind speed in miles as it corresponds to the revolutions of the wind dial. A rain gauge and instructions for how to use it to measure snow fall also attach to the plastic weather station. A discussion of the types and effects of pollution conclude the text portion. The materials for the station are fairly sturdy and detailed line drawings aid in the assembly. The real question is how to set it up outside without it being damaged or blown over. The author suggests putting a rock inside the plastic structure; my experience in assembling is that additional materials are needed. 2000, Running Press, $19.95. Ages 7 to 14.
