Praise for Flip The Flaps: Weather

Weather seem to fascinate children, and this book will answer many of the questions that they like to ask. . . . Children can try to answer the questions themselves, and then they can find out if they were right by looking undera a page flap, where the anwers are hidden.
 
Horn Book
The approach is visually appealing.
 
NSTA Recommends
This informative book will engage readers in a tactile way as they explore the text. . . . Some of the illustrations are labeled, providing additional nontextual information. This book would be a nice inclusion in a classroom or school library because it builds on the natural curiosity of young children. . . . Although the information is very general, it's appropriate for young children who have questions such as "Is the weather always colder at night?" or "Which colors are in a rainbow?" The general nature of the information can be used as a beginning point for further exploration by students.
