Product Description:

Understanding weather begins with familiarity of the terms used to describe our weather. Covering common weather terms like temperature, air pressure, moisture and wind along with related descriptive words, this book gives children a great foundation in meteorology.

Publisher Description:

Everyone talks about the weather, but what does it all mean? In clear, accessible language, Gail Gibbons introduces many common terms–like moisture, air pressure, and temperature–and their definitions.

Simple, kid-friendly text explains the origins of fog, clouds, frost, thunderstorms, snow, fronts, hurricanes, reinforcing the explanations with clear, well-labeled drawings and diagrams. Newly revised, this edition of Weather Words and What They Mean has been vetted by an expert from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association. Best of all, the book features a fun list of weird weather facts!

Category Description for Gail Gibbons Science Books:

I was thrilled to see that these wonderful science books are once again available! Brilliantly illustrated, with striking photos and diagrams combined with clearly explained science facts made these a family favorite for years. In fact, our beloved copy of the Moon Book was held together by packing tape until my son finally outgrew his love of space in middle school.

Written by popular children's author Gail Gibbons, each book in the series provides younger children an excellent primer in a wide-range of science topics. Don't let the term "primer" scare you off! The information presented is foundational to the topical study of science within each book. Page counts vary from 28-32 pgs. Most are paperback with the exception of Surrounded by Sea, which is hardcover. From a secular publisher, you will find the occasional evolutionary references which may make for interesting family discussion. ~Deanne
