Miloš & Brontë
Pa: Serve it up.

Miloš: Okay. I liked it because of the little dance at the end. It's a rain dance.

Pa: Did you do the dance?

Miloš: Yes. I did.

Pa: That's right, I remember that. You mocked me for my bad dance.

Miloš: I'm sorry.

Pa: Why? Mocking's not always bad. I thought it was funny.

Miloš: Okay, I guess I'm not sorry then. Ummm ... sooooo ... back to Storms. I also liked it because of the two guys who were playing basketball.

Pa: What did they have to do with Storms?

Miloš: Nothing. It was just
This was a good non-fiction book with basic information about different storms. I would prefer to see it organized with a more apparent order so it moved logically, but I could see using each blurb separately and not reading the entire book at the same time. Overall, I think having this, and other National Geographic readers, in the classroom would be beneficial.

This non-fiction hook provides information on different types of storms. It also makes connections to different cultures and animals that experience the different types of storms. Students can use this book in literacy stations. They could write about different storms they have experienced. They can also draw pictures and make connections to their experiences.

National Geographic photographs make this a beautiful introduction to weather. The definition of storm is broad enough that sandstorms are included. Weather on different planets also makes an appearance with some facts kids will find amazing (900 mile hour winds on Neptune!) Weather Words are defined in the margins of the book.

As expected the photos are fantastic. The text covers a wide variety of weather patterns including rain, hail, tornado, monsoon, and others.
Both the photos and text have an international, even intergalactic focus. Includes visual glossary and table of contents.
