Science & Children (NSTA Recommends)

"Children seem to have their eyes constantly aimed at the sky. The shapes of clouds spark imagination and curiosity. Fluffy, Flat, and Wet: A Book about Clouds builds on this natural inquiry, giving young readers scientific facts about how clouds are formed and more. Like other books in the Amazing Science series , this volume is full of information for those inquisitive young minds. It's written for lower-level independent readers and allows them to extend their knowledge with research. In a typical nonfiction format, the books include a table of contents that lists the chapter titles and page numbers, and index, and a glossary for those tough-to-understand words. To build inquiry skills, young scientists are directed to read other books about this topic, and they are directed to a "FactHound" website that will give users a special search related to each book. The author has made a great effort to connect science topics to real-world experiences of children who are beginning the study of science. The text is filled with relevant examples; for instance, the author compares a cumulus cloud to a scoop of ice cream. Each chapter includes a "Fun Fact" that will educate readers and help them make more connections with the topic about which they are reading. Each of the books in this series also has an activity included at the end to culimate the reading and keep the reader interested in the topic." - Science & Children (NSTA Recommends)
