Review
(The following is a combined review for All About the Weather; Extreme Weather; Germ Warfare; Moon Missions; Body Basics; Earth's Place in the Sky; Earth's Treasures: Rocks and Minerals; Force and Motion; Volcanoes: Fire From Below; Wheels, Wings, and Motors; Brain Works; Earthquakes: On Shaky Ground; and ) Gr 3 – 5 — Like the similarly formatted "How It Works" series, above-average photos and graphic images combine with brief but specific narratives and captions to set these broad surveys apart. Together, All About the Weather and Extreme Weather combine to present a vivid picture of the forces that drive weather and climate (and climate change). Not all of the titles are equally valuable; Earth's Place in the Sky , for instance, is just another quick tour of the solar system, and Moon missions does not mention China's Yutu Moon rover but does incorrectly claim that NASA's planned Moon project was cancelled (actually, that was just the Ares launch vehicle). --John Peters (Reviewed April 1, 2014) (School Library Journal, vol 60, issue 4, p98)
