Review

How The Weather Works is a colorful, informative hands-on guide to weather and climate. It describes a wide variety of topics including rain (which features an adorable story as told by a raindrop), hurricanes, historical climate, and current issues relating to the environment. This book has many scientific facts and easy-to-understand explanations that make it suitable for younger children who want a basic understanding or older children that want to learn more and dig deeper. However, because there are many different topics crammed into one book, it has the appearance of being cluttered and overwhelming. Overall, this book would be great for parents or teachers who are interested in getting their children more excited and interested in weather and climate. Recommended.
