I was shocked after I read this book to see that it was published in 1987. I know the weather has probably not changed a great deal in the past 30 years, but it seemed like a recently published book. "Wild, Wet, and Windy" goes into detail about the many different weather conditions that takes place throughout the world. It breaks down step by step how things like rain, hurricanes, tornados, and snow form. There are also facts all over the pages about that particular weather condition. I think this is would be a great book for science class for not only its detailed text, but also its organization. All the steps and facts are outlined in boxes and are numbered. This really helps the reader not get overwhelmed with all the information provided on the page. I would definitely have this book in my science class, despite its age. ( )
