Clouds
by Anne Rockwell
illustrated by Franc Lesac


This Let's Read and Find Out Science title covers the 10 different types of clouds and how to forecast the weather just by looking at them. Spreads feature kids engaged in outdoor activities, with a featured cloud type depicted above them and a few sentences about what makes that cloud type unique.  Rockwell has provided just enough information for children in the lower grades. (We've bumped the interest level up a bit from the publishers recommendation of "preschool and up.")

If you like this one, there are more Let's Read and Find Out Science series books. We really like this series. The authors and illustrators do such a good job of taking complex science subjects and putting them into kid friendly doses and language!  They are definitely worth checking out.
