Can It Rain Cats and Dogs?

Can It Rain Cats and Dogs?

by Gilda Berger, Melvin Berger Illustrated by Robert Sullivan

Questions and answers about weather. From simple questions like "What makes the weather?" to more complex ones like "What is El Nino?", this book helps kids understand why and how the weather changes.

This book will answer children's questions about weather as it explores the basics in beautifully illustrated sections on sun, air, and wind; rain, snow, and hail; and wild weather like hurricanes and tornadoes. The questions and answers should help to appease even the most curious child's need to know why the weather keeps changing, what happens to puddles after it rains, if you can smell the rain, if lightning can grow hair, and if groundhogs really can predict the weather.
