Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0792265882, Paperback)Most of us take weather for granted--except when it gets extreme. But there are fascinating weather effects happening all the time, and a patient observer can see some very interesting things, like waterspouts, golfball-sized hail, and lenticular (saucer-shaped) clouds. This guide is your key to identifying and understanding weather phenomena. The first part of the book explains what weather is, how it is measured, and how you can build your own observation devices at home. The next section is a thorough guide to cloud types, storms, and precipitation that will have you thinking like a meteorologist in no time. Lastly, there's a well-organized reference section with a glossary and more weather resources. Like all the guides in this series (Wildflowers, Insects, Birds, Rocks and Minerals, and Mammals), this First Field Guide to weather is a great family resource, perfect for kids and adults. (Ages 8 and up) --Therese Littleton
