Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-While books on weather experiments are popular, this one is simple to the point of being misleading. It consists of many photographs and illustrations, each one captioned with two or three sentences. The ``experiments'' consist of a single photo and a few sentences describing an activity, not an experiment. The photos are clear and colorful, but the drawings are rather crude. Sketches of different kinds of clouds are indistinct. The text is equally unhelpful. For example, the statement that ``thunder is the sound created by a lightning flash'' does little to enlighten readers as to what happens in a thunder storm. The activity on the facing page shows a girl sticking balloons on the wall using static electricity, but leaves out any definition of it or its relationship to the electricity in a thunderstorm. Stick with the Weather volume in the ``Eyewitness'' series, Simple Weather Experiments with Everyday Materials (Sterling, 1990) by Muriel Mandell, and Jonathan Kahl's ``How's the Weather?'' series (Lerner).-Janet K.
