Tina5 Stars Out Of 5The Weather Book, The Wonders of CreationOctober 23, 2014TinaLove this book, my son is thoroughly enjoying Weather as his science subject this semester!! I would encourage anyone interested in the weather to purchase this book.
Debbie from ChristFocusHarrison, ARAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Good job at clearly explaining weatherJune 22, 2011Debbie from ChristFocusHarrison, ARAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5"The Weather Book" is a nonfiction book about various types of weather and what causes that weather to occur. The author assumed that he had a Christian audience and spoke frequently in terms of "God created." He clearly explained each topic and defined the few scientific terms in the text (though there's also a glossary in the back). I think 11-year-olds on up can easily understand the information in this book.
There were full color pictures and illustrations. In the back, there's a 12 by 24 inch pull-out full-color poster with pictures from the book. Overall, I'd highly recommend this book to children and adults who are interested in learning more about the weather and the forces that cause the weather.
Chapter 1 explained how the earth shows special design by God. Chapter 2 talked about climate zones, what causes weather, weather trivia (hottest, wettest, etc.), how to read a weather map (like those printed in a newspaper), the jet stream, and El Nino. Chapter 3 explained the water cycle, cloud types, the elevation of those clouds, warm fronts, cold fronts, fog, and the dew point.
Chapter 4 talked about thunderstorms and lightening. Chapter 5 talked about hail and wind damage. Chapter 6 talked about hurricanes. Chapter 7 talked about winter storms. Chapter 8 talked about St. Elmo's Fire, Foehn winds, the lake effect, and ball lightening.
Chapter 9 talked about the clues to the earth's climate in the past--including the ice age--and how Noah's Flood explains the Ice Age better than secular explanations. Chapter 10 talked about the climate in the future, including global warming and the ozone layer. Chapter 11 talked about various weather instruments (thermometers, weather balloon, cloud photography, etc.) as well as how a child can make a weather vane, barometer, rain gauge, and do a condensation experiment. Chapter 12 talked about how Christians ought to relate to the environment.
Elizabeth M5 Stars Out Of 5March 14, 2005Elizabeth MThis is a very nice book. The photos are fabulous and the writing is friendly and engaging. I prefer this over the Geology book from the same publisher.
Q: Does this book include comprehension questions or activities for the reader to complete?
There are no comprehension questions. Chapter 11 of the book gives some instructions for making home-made instruments to measure weather.
