Booklist - 06/01/2017 What is the windiest city on Earth? (Hint: it’s not Chicago). Did you know that the jellyfishlike bursts of electricity high above a thundercloud are called sprites? A derecho is the invisible wind wall in front of a thunderstorm. These and other interesting facts about all types of weather are presented in a way that is easily digestible for curious young readers. The book’s large font and bright, eye-catching color photos, accompanied by informative sidebars and text bubbles, will draw readers into this engaging book. The chapters are divided into seven sections, such as “Wonderful Weather,” “It’s Hot Outside,” and “When It Rains.” Each chapter ends with fun games that reinforce the ideas covered. Pop-up facts are sprinkled throughout, interspersed with interactive questions designed to encourage conversation, and parent tips, a glossary, and an index are included. This appealing volume in the National Geographic Little Kids First Big Books series will find a ready audience of eager readers. - Copyright 2017 Booklist.
