Kids are fascinated with storms. Clouds roll in, the wind blusters, suddenly there are flashes of lightning, and claps of thunder.
Young meteorologists will learn what causes lightning and thunder, how rain falls from the clouds, the different types of lightning, why they see lightning before they hear thunder, and much more. Children will also find out ways in which to prevent themselves from being harmed during thunderstorms.
Lightning flashes! Thunder crashes! The Scholastic Science Readers series was created especially to bring exciting nonfiction to beginning readers. Illustrated with full-color photographs.
