This book is chock full of weather facts and fun. It starts with a basic introduction to weather and then goes into the more extreme aspects. Droughts, tsunamis, tornadoes, blizzards, and so on are all discussed in terms of causes, records, etc.
While my students will enjoy this and find many interesting facts, I was annoyed by the organization or lack thereof. The information jumped around. Tornadoes were discussed and then many pages later there was a challenge about them and then they were discussed more later. Thank goodness for the index.
