Summary
Whether you are using them to know if you need an umbrella or to make sure your crops get enough water, weather predictions are useful for just about everyone on Earth.

A True Book: Earth Science series presents fascinating facts and fun activities that will engage the budding earth scientist, while exploring the fields of geology, meteorology, ecology, and more. This series includes an age appropriate (grades 3-5) introduction to curriculum-relevant subjects and a robust resource section that encourages independent study.

Readers will find out how meteorologists study patterns in Earth's atmosphere to predict temperature changes, dangerous storms, and even global climate change.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Much like the other subsets, these volumes in the A True Book: Earth Science series are models of introducing a broad range of topics while still being concise and graphically pleasing to boot. Each book boasts a layout that never feels the least bit lazy and is kept fresh with sharp pictures, fun time lines, and breakout sections isolating the most dazzling of subtopics. Meteorology has lots of weapons to keep interest: Tornadoes! Blizzards! Lightning! But the most fascinating side-trip involves the long-kept secret of The Old Farmer's Almanac. A bright, appealing package perfect for writing reports or for following individual interests.--Kraus, Daniel Copyright 2010 Booklist"
