The Kids' Book of Clouds and Sky
The Kids' Book of Clouds and Sky written and photographed by Frank Staub
Illustrated with hundreds of captivating photographs, and written in a kid-friendly style, this informative guide answers the dozen of questions children ask about the sky and weather. They'll learn about humidity, fog, and storms; get an introduction to cloud types, and find out if it's true that you can tell direction from the sun.
And there's much more too, including information on clouds mistaken for flying saucers, and celestial phenomena such as shooting stars and the Aurora Borealis.
A wonderful resource for meteorology-minded kids!
