Book
Explorers are designed to stimulate readers in the early elementary grades (ages7-10), who are beginning to exercise wider reading, research and cross-referencing skills. They can be read from page to page, or – as a fun extra element – the reader can follow special ‘page links’ to access information on related topics. Six fabulous artwork scenes are each followed up with photographic information spreads, which provide extra detail and background.
 

Starting with the question "What is weather?" this book takes readers on a metrologic journey around the world including a trip into the clouds, back to the ground as a tornado approaches, and into a flooded valley following a cyclone. At each step readers learn not only what forces create weather but also how Earth’s many inhabitants (human and otherwise) have evolved to face it.

Praise for Explorers: Weather

NSTA Recommends
The Explorers reference series . . . provide a clever way for readers to make decisions about what they want to learn, and they encourage active reading. . . . The format of the book is very kid-friendly for research reports. Weather is an engaging text, complete with a table of contents, an index, and a "more to explore" section for children craving more information. . . .  This is a worthwhile series to include in a K-3 classroom.
