Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Beverly Kobrin
In this book, Ms Gibbons simply and succinctly illustrates and defines temperature, air pressure, moisture, wind, and their related terms. She also explains where weather comes from. 1992 (orig.
School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-- Gibbons' easily identifiable artistic style works well with her explanations of sometimes misunderstood weather-related terms. Drawings are appealing, attractively arranged, and closely matched to the textual information. Temperature, air pressure, moisture, and wind are broadly defined and illustrated. Each of the four areas is then broken down further: moisture is illustrated as rain, drizzle, hail, snow, etc. The term describing each type of weather phenomenon is highly visible in large type and is contained in a dialogue balloon that stands out from the accompanying illustration. One page of curious weather facts concludes the book. An attractive introduction for weather units in the primary grades, along with Gibbon's Weather Forecasting (Four Winds, 1987). --Carolyn S. Brodie, Kent State University, OH

    Weather Words

    This book is an excellent read to go along with Simon's weather book. Easy for children to understand and adults. I take my 4 and 5 year old grandkids outside and point out the clouds we see and name them. We also talk about the wind, rain, and whatever weather event is happening at the moment. Very good.
