The perfect introduction to how we talk and think about the weather

Everyone talks about the weather, but what does it all mean? In clear, accessible language, Gail Gibbons introduces many common terms—like moisture, air pressure, and temperature—and their definitions.

Simple, kid-friendly text explains the origins of fog, clouds, frost, thunderstorms, snow, fronts, hurricanes, reinforcing the explanations with clear, well-labeled drawings and diagrams. Newly revised, this edition of Weather Words and What They Mean has been vetted by an expert from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association. Best of all, the book features a fun list of weird weather facts!

This book is an excellent read to go along with Simon's weather book. Easy for children to understand and adults. I take my 4 and 5 year old grandkids outside and point out the clouds we see and name them. We also talk about the wind, rain, and whatever weather event is happening at the moment. Very good.
