Full Text Reviews:

School Library Journal - 11/01/2012 K-Gr 4—From numerous discussion prompts to suggestions for recording personal observations, this series is designed to engage. Johnson carefully articulates the difference between climate and weather and clearly explains topics such as the water cycle, forms of precipitation, and factors affecting temperature. For the most part, the author avoids overlap among volumes. However, diagrams of the water cycle and the Earth's rotation appear more than once. Each book contains information about meteorologists and some of their instruments. This feature ties in nicely with the activities that conclude the volumes, which include instructions on how to make projects such as a windsock and thermometer box. Not only are students encouraged to keep a weather journal, but the titles also explain how to use collected data to create relevant graphs or charts. These activities could be carried out by an entire class or small group at lower elementary levels or by older students individually. - Copyright 2012 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
