This is a great book to teach students about all types of clouds and what weather they produce. I liked this book because it was very informative and teaches you a lot about clouds in a quick read. It would be a great book to use during a science class. The illustrations really helped show what the different types of clouds looked like so students would have a better understanding for the next time they wanted to observe clouds in the sky. Pictures are repeated and labeled to reinforce which clouds are what. Each cloud also has its own section with a picture, a description of what the cloud looks like, and what type of weather it brings. The language is also very descriptive as it tells you what prefixes and suffixes of each of the cloud names mean. For example, "stratus means clouds that are flat and spread out like a blanket" and "cirr" indicates that the cloud is high up in the air. From this a student can infer that a cirrostratus cloud is a flat cloud that is high up in the atmosphere. Another reason why I liked this book is because at the very end of the book it gives you additional facts and even an art project where you can create your very own cloud. ( )

“Clouds (Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science 1)" by Anne Rockwell, is a great book that explains simple science concepts to young children. Not only is this book full of information about clouds, it is also entertaining. Throughout the book the pictures are very eye catching. This book is not like most nonfiction books; it has a very kid friendly feel, but still gets the point across of the different types of clouds. ( )

Book description
This illustrated non-fiction book combines fun and interesting pictures illustrated by Frane Lessac, with a full content of cloud information. Rockwell does a great job of explaining cloud types by height, shape, appearance, and weather they bring. Why clouds are named the way they are, is explained as well, which may help students make comparisons and contrasts between the ten different types of clouds. The importance of clouds and what they do to help living things on earth is touched. In the back is more cloud facts, as well as a simple experiment that creates a cloud.
