What we call "weather" is caused by forces occurring globally that are in constant motion. The Weather Book starts with the "big picture," our place in space, and explains how each of the various weather conditions plays a role in our daily lives. Learn how thunderstorms build, hurricanes are formed, tornadoes destroy, and about crazy weather phenomena. Included are fascinating insights to weather in the past, including Noah's flood and the Ice Age, and weather in the future. Safety tips are given for dangerous weather situations and instructions for building a weather station. Fifty full-color illustrations and over 75 photographs help make this book equal in quality to any public school textbook. A standout in homes, libraries, and classrooms.
