Just a Big Storm
By Mercer Mayer
Published 2013

Rationale for Twin Texts Selection

The students are learning about weather, so we will be looking at two books about weather. The non-fiction book asks several questions about weather and then answers them. This a great book to learn about the weather and what happens. It is formatted in a great way for children because they are always asking why just like the book. The other book, Just a Big Storm, is a great addition to this lesson becau

This book was very fun and intriguing, even for me as an adult reader. People of all ages have questions about weather that are addressed in this book, such as "What causes the seasons?" and "What makes a tornado twist?" This book is written using very simple language that young readers can understand which makes it even more enjoyable. There are also pictures and diagrams that go along with the questions to help readers get a clarified understanding about different aspects of weather.
