Ready to Read
Weather Series

by Marion Dane Bauer; illustrated by John Wallace


The Level 1 'Ready-to-Read' weather books use simple language, just one or two short sentences on each spread, and charming watercolor and ink illustrations to teach young children the basics on four different types of weather:

  • rain (including a simple water cycle explanation) 
  • clouds (including the different types of clouds) 
  • wind (including the movement of warm and cold masses) 
  • snow (including how a snowflake forms)

We agree with School Library Journal, who ended their review by saying, "Primary teachers will welcome this series for their reading centers."
