Gr 1-3-Good, simple introductions to weather concepts and terms, logically organized. The material is presented in easy, one- or two-sentence chunks of information. The first title covers water vapor, the water cycle, various facts about the sun, and more. Raining discusses clouds, water vapor, the physical appearance of raindrops, etc. Each book has a simple experiment. Pleasing graphic elements include color photos and illustrations and bright borders. These books would be good additions to support classroom units on weather. Pairing them with Judi Barrett's Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs (S & S, 1978) makes for a lively discussion among groups of first graders about fiction versus nonfiction books related to weather.-Heather Ver Voort, Washington West Elementary, Olean, NY Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
