Wild Weather – School Library Journal, Series Made Simple
Just the right combination of facts, visual imagery, and reading practice for young pupils curious about extreme weather phenomena. Each title defines the pattern (e.g., blizzards have winds 35 mph and over), explains the particular dangers (flood waters can carry away cars and houses), and describes how people can predict and prepare for the wild weather (meteorologists use satellites to predict hurricanes). Additional fascinating facts are highlighted (the largest hailstone ever recorded weighed two pounds and was eight inches across). A solid choice for emerging readers that may pique interest in nonfiction.
Hail (Wild Weather) – Booklist
Though it doesn’t downplay the seriousness of the effects dangerous weather can have on people and property, the Wild Weather series primarily takes a measured, scientific approach to the examination of different kinds of storms. Geared toward newly independent readers, the text is straightforward, and vocabulary is clearly defined. A solid resource for report writers and emerging readers.
