Review
(The following is a combined review for Clouds; Hurricanes; Snow; Thunderstorms; Tornadoes; and ) Gr 1 – 4 — Stunning color photos and a clean format will spark readers' interest in science. The content moves beyond mere description of natural phenomena, offering easy-to-understand explanations. Bodden presents weather facts clearly, though occasionally she also uses question-provoking declarations, e.g., "Meteorologists may use big balloons as part of their studies," that may leave students wanting more information. The font changes size throughout, adding to the visual stimulation, and short sentences that run along the bottom of pages offer interesting tidbits and sometimes explain the accompanying photos. Information and images are repeated in the different volumes. Each book ends with a simple experiment, such as: "Funnel in a Bottle." The exceptional layout distinguishes this series. --Kathryn Diman (Reviewed April 1, 2012) (School Library Journal, vol 58, issue 04, p100)
