New Look! Relaunched with new jackets and 8 pages of new text!

Here is a spectacular and informative guide to the skies above us. Superb color photographs of the sky in all kinds of weather conditions, together with specially built 3-D models, offer a unique and revealing view of weather, from calm summer days to the bitter storms of winter. See the biggest hailstone, inside the eye of a hurricane, a warm front in 3-D, the beauty of a snow crystal, a moon dog, and a dust devil. Learn the difference between a stratus and cumulonimbus cloud, how our weather may change in the future, and why tornadoes are so ferocious. Discover why deserts are dry, how clouds are born, what makes raindrops grow, how to make your own forecast, why the sky is blue, and much, much more.

Photographs and text depict different aspects of weather and how it is forecast.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5-8-- These series' entries feature attractive spreads filled with eye-catching illustrative materials and clear, concise writing. Invention surveys major areas of technology throughout history, with each spread showing the stages of development in one field (e.g., timekeeping, metalworking). Most captions include the approximate date of the invention pictured, but some years are not given, making it occasionally difficult to trace how each new step evolved. In Weather , the imaginative use of photographs helps to clarify many of the concepts. Reptile stands out because of the fascinating photographs, which are brilliantly lifelike and well chosen to demonstrate concepts discussed, educating readers in a way that words (or mediocre illustrations) cannot. The text is nicely balanced between straightforward factual data and intriguing bits of trivia, making the book useful both to browsers and report writers. Both gems and crystals are noted briefly in Symes's Rocks & Minerals (Knopf, 1988) from this series, but receive more expansive treatment (and all-new photographs) in the newer title. The dazzling, full-color photographs on uncluttered pages make it a visual treat. --Steven Engelfried, Pleasanton Library, CA

    Not worth the price.

    Book too complicated for young readers.
