School Library Journal Review

K-Gr 4This useful book, first published with humdrum illustrations by Ed Emberley (Crowell, 1964; o.p.), underwent a major metamorphosis in 1985, with a rearranged and revised text accompanied by colorful, inviting illustrations by Barbara and Ed Emberley. Now, in a general revamping of the entire series, this simple treatise on thunder and lightning has been transformed. The text contains minor revisions, and Kelleys watercolor illustrations are bright and appealing. Diagrams are clearer and labeling promotes easier interpretation. Also included, for active home investigators (or enthusiastic classroom teachers), is a page containing two simple weather experiments and a list of three Internet weather sites. Nicely done.Patricia Manning, formerly at Eastchester Public Library, NY (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
