When visiting our town's nature center recently, I spied some interesting-looking books in its collection. One of them was The Handy Weather Answer Book, by Walter A. Lyons. Riffling through it, I could see lots of concise answers to questions young weather buffs might have. The book turns out to be one in a Barnes and Noble series, and right now it's not available from the online store. But I'm going to keep an eye out for Handy Weather, especially if it turns up on the B & N discount shelves.
My son also likes Super Storms, an advanced beginning reader in the See More series by Seymour Simon. Dramatic photographs enhance its appeal. Danger! Earthquakes in this same series is another good one. Look for paperback versions of these in the Scholastic catalogues or among the tchotchkes at the book fair.
