This is the third book that I have read in this non-fiction series. It is every bit as informative as the books I read on the Vikings and Ancient Romans.
This entry will intrigue children who are interested in weather and climate. They will learn the difference between those two terms and will also learn about biomes and more. In each section, the reader my find either a quick fact, a project or both. Learn what causes rain. Understand what clouds are made of. Find out what makes a rainbow. There is all this and more.
I especially enjoyed the illustrations in this book. When the weather is stormy, the pages are dark. They are lighter for better days.
There is a section about climate change and suggestions about things that kids can do to help. While not alarmist, this part of the book is helpful and realistic.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
SNOW, SLEET, HAIL AND FROST
Snowflakes form when moisture freezes into ice crystals in clouds. As ice crystals bump together, they combine and get bigger.
ADAPTING TO CLIMATE
Animals that live in very hot places adapt to their environments. For example, the fennec fox, an animal that lives in hot climates, has thick, sand coloured fur that keeps it warm in the cold desert at night.
