The pop up pages attract attention, an advantage in a small group setting. I really liked this book despite the fact that the last 2 pages have some outdated information and bears the briefest whiff of a 'political agenda pushing', which is so unnecessary and I find distasteful in juvenile books.
Little Kid Reaction: The fourth-grade students loved the interactive elements and the arrangement of the topics. Many of them wanted to check the book out and take it home to look at again.

Big Kid Reaction: I liked the fact that the author did not “talk down” to the audience. She crams a lot of information into this book.

Pop-up books always end up at the top of my list! This beautifully illustrated book reals in the reader without even trying! So much is going on at once, just like the weather. Children of all ages, even adults, would fall in love with this interactive climate book. Learning doesn't always have to be boring!
This book was so cool and interactive! I decided to pick up this book because I had just taken a weather course and a weather lab last semester. It was very interesting and hit a lot of points that we did in class! I definitely recommend this book, and I think it would be a good learning tool!
