Children's Literature (CLCD) - Cindy L. Carolan

"Is it safer to stay in the car if caught in a blizzard or to step outside and look for help? Is the size of a snowflake affected by the temperature? Many fascinating facts about blizzards are found in this fun little science book. (Answers, respectively: stay in the car and yes, the closer the temperature is to 32 degress Fahrenheit, the larger the flake.) The illustrations are vibrant and explanatory. The first few pages give safety facts--including the origin of the word blizzard, which is derived from the German word "blitzartig" which is defined as "like lightning"--and a glossary. Additional resources from the library or Internet are also included. Part of the "Amazing Science" series, this would be easily utilized in an early elementary natural sceince/meterological unit. Highly recommended." - Children's Literature (CLCD)
