The title of the book is "Oh Say Can you Say What's The Weather Today?" The author of the book is Tish Rabe and is illustrated by Aristides Ruiz. This book is published by Random house and was copyrighted in 2004. This is a cat in the hat series book by Dr. Seuss.

I really liked this book because it talked about everything weather. It talked about precipitation and it talked about various instruments used to forecast the weather. The Cat in the Hat takes a boy and girl around to various "locatio

This informational book is a great tool to use to teach children about the different weather patterns but in an easy to understand format. The illustrations keep with a whimsical Dr. Seuss feel that children love. The words are easy to understand and the text can easily be paired with a science activity like making a tornado in a bottle.

All the "Cat in the Hat Learning Library" books have been very good and fun to read. They all teach about Science without 'being in your face" Science books. Like this one has lots of vocabulary words that they make it easy to learn what they mean. Teaching in rhymes brings not only education but giggles and smiles too.

Children learn all about weather in this whimsical, rhyming book, narrated by the Cat in the Hat. It begins with the Cat asking two children to join him on a trip to learn about how weather changes and then follows the threesome on their adventures. Students learn all about weather stations, what forces affect weather, how weather (temperature & precipitation) is measured (including thermometers and anemometers), types of clouds, the water cycle (solid, liquids and gasses included), differen ...more

This is an entertaining and informative book about weather. With a fun, rhyming narrative, classic Dr. Seuss characters, and colorful background scenes of different deserts, it's a good book to read aloud with children.

I love that it shows different facets of weather in a way that is easy to understand, but doesn't really 'dumb it down' for children. There are a lot of weather topics that are discussed in this book and they reinforced what our girls are learning or have learned in school. We en

We checked this book out from the library but will now be buying it. It's an excellent introduction to the weather for pre-school age children. My daughter is 4.5 and she is at the perfect age for this book. The rhyming is really good and makes the book easy to listen to for my daughter as well as fun to read for me. This book covers a lot of weather types and climates and explains it in easy to understand rhymes. There is also a glossary at the end. Highly recommend!

I love the whole series of these books. They present wonderful information in a rhyming sort of fashion. These are some of the best kid books out there because they teach them about the natural world, but do it in a fun way...not like a lot of other "non-fiction" kids books which are a little dry.. My three year old loves these! I recommend anyone with little kids get them! I got four, three-packs at Costco for an amazing deal! I think there are currently about 24 books in the series.

The Cat in the Hat's Learning Library bring the beloved children's character and fun metered rhymes together to teach you about a subject. This book is bursting with info. From the water cycle to different climates to types of weather kids will pick up a lot from this book. The included glossary is great as is the further reading suggestions.

This book is about people going up in a hot air balloon and experience different weather conditions. Along the way, they learn about the importance of weather tools, such as thermometer. I wouls use this book in the class to teach the students the different tools and show how they are important for each weather condition.

This book could be used to help students identify weather in first grade. There might be a corresponding video on PBS as an alternative to having a read aloud. Teachers could get students to make a weather journal for each day. Students will record what they saw before dismissal to ensure that weather changes throughout the day were included in their synopsis.

I was looking for a book to do a weather unit for our summer reading program. This book is great with a lot of information that may be too much for our younger group...but still great information done in a rhyming way. I think I will take a bit here and a bit there to make it into what I want.

This is a great book to read to students when beginning a new lesson on weather. The book is filled with different topics so you can go over different sections on the book depending on what topic of weather you may be covering! This is an idea book for children.

If you're looking for a great way to understand weather and the most dangerous weather occurrences on Earth, then this is your book.This book is fun and just because it's short doesn't mean the information is limited!

This was a good book, breaking down the science of weather for kids and making it more comprehensible.

This book is a great way to teach weather in a condensed form. It talks about every type of weather. This book could be used for any grade but preferably third or fourth grade.
