Science and Children

"Hurricanes are severe weather systems that can cause a lot of damage and can have very frightening effects. This book explains the science of these systems and why making a landfall on an island does not stop a hurricane. A website is included that will help students link to many other excellent sites about hurricanes. Accurate science content is presented in a no-nonsense manner through the guidance of Daniel Dix, a senior meterologist at the Weather Channel. The conclusion of the book features sections devoted to surviving severe weather safely, interesting facts about extreme storms, a glossary, Internet and print bibliographies, and an index. This book is part of the Amazing Science series, in which author Rick Thomas explains weather to young elementary students in an inviting and informative manner. Each brightly illustrated book of approximately 20 pages explains a weather phenomenon and its causes. Written in a way that will entice children to want to learn more, this book helps them begin their journey on the road to solving many meterological mysteries." - Science and Children
