Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2003 Fall)
Readers will learn how different weather patterns form in the earth's atmosphere, from mild winds and minor showers to hail, tornadoes, hurricanes, and blizzards. Liberally illustrated with black-and-white photos and pencil drawings, the book has the same approachability as the fiction series. The information is both entertaining and useful.
