Books about Weather

Experience Extreme Weather
by John Farndon
Go on a journey from the sun to the earth, becoming a hurricane, a tornado, and a thunderstorm. Along the way, learn about weather instruments, wind, fog, clouds, frost, deserts, monsoons, and climate. With spectacular photographs and diagrams. Perfect for budding meteorologists.

by Nikki Bundey
A beginner's introduction to cold weather. Brief chapters discuss the formation of frost and ice crystals, how glaciers shape the earth, and how plants and animals adapt to cold. Easy activities encourage readers to develop skills in experimentation and observation. The final chapter - Ice Age or Heat Wave? - doesn't really provide an answer that will satisfy astute readers. You may need to look for other books in the Science of Weather series, available at your library or at Lerner Books.
