This is another great book by Seymour Simon. Perfect for first and second graders. Easy to understand and simple. I share this book with my 4 and 5 year old grandkids. They can relate to its content. We go outside and talk about the clouds, the wind, and other subjects of nature, including themselves. It turns their little minds on and they have begun asking real questions about life and nature. Very good.

This book was for my son who is interested in the weather and all aspects of it. Great pictures and easy for him to read. Explains about the different types of weather, and what it does. A must for those who want to teach kids or adults about our weather in everyday life.
