Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0803737939, Hardcover)“…This book is simple, attractive, and informative, and a take-off point for a discussion on the scientific method.”—School Library Journal review of Boy, Were we Wrong About Dinosaurs
Ancient Sumerian warriors used to think that lightning and thunder were caused by an angry weather god —boy, were they wrong!
Even today once common ideas about how our weather and climate work are changing as new discoveries are being made. Kathleen V. Kudlinski and Sebastià Serra team up to debunk old—and sometimes silly—myths about weather and to celebrate the pioneers that made meteorology the science it is today.
This award-winning series is especially meant for the budding scientist and is perfect for children who are fascinated by the natural world and how it works.

"Examines what is known about weather--storms, predictions, climate, and other characteristics--and how different the facts are from what scientists, from ancient Sumerians to the recent past, believed to be true."--
