School Library Journal Review

YA-For students or serious weather watchers, this handy little volume has distinct advantages. "How Weather Works" covers all the major topics under the headings "The Earth in Space," "Weather Builders," and "Fronts and Storms." The focus in "World Weather" is on "Climate and Climate Change." The third and final part has a helpful field guide to the sky, including cloud identification. This section also includes a handy reference that contains a rich collection of weather contacts, tables of meteorological variables, a map of extreme world weather events, and a selection of international symbols to aid in reading weather maps. Sidebars provide detailed information on such topics as "Floods," "El Ni-o," and "A Viewer's Guide to the TV Weathercast." The text, while highly authoritative, is written in the voice of your favorite weatherman. The abundant colored drawings, charts, and illustrations help to clarify complex meteorological phenomena.-Cynthia J. Rieben, W. T. Woodson High School, Fairfax, VA (c) Copyright 2010.
