Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This is a great book to use in a weather unit because it throughly explains all the details of how thunder and lightening happen.
This book is another excellent early elementary science book from Branley who has written a series of young children's science books. Children have a natural curiosity to learn about the world around them and this book serves that purpose. The book is well illustrated and will lead to many different lessons such as seasons, temperature changes, and the speed of light. An excellent resource for young readers.
When a storm comes, you should not be afraid but prepared. Lightening is electricity from the clouds and thunder is the sound waves. When a storm comes stay away from water and metal items that lightening will be attracted it. Also, make sure that if you are caught in a storm that you are not the tallest thing because lightening tends to strike the highest things, such as tree. This is a great read aloud book to teach children about the weather and how to be safe during a storm.
