Gail Gibbons introduces basic weather terms and concepts to young readers in a simple, yet interesting style. She even makes the scary side of weather approachable; roaring thunder, bolts of lightening, and raucous storms are all presented as elements that make our days and seasons different...and amazing! Again, Gibbons has succeeded in presenting "dry science" in a way that is exciting and enlightening. Her distinctive illustrations are light-hearted and keenly complement this well-written text. A basic first read for any future meteorologist.
