Have you ever wondered about all of the words used by your local weather forecaster? This book gives information about a ton of weather words.
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.
